The Georgetown Sertoma Club is participating in this year’s “Field of Honor”™ event hosted by the Georgetown Rotary Club, as part of our National Heritage projects. The initial event took place in 2017 with the display of 1400 full size American Flags by the Georgetown Rotary Club with 2000 flags in 2018. Sertoma is participating by hosting an event in conjunction with Heroes Night Out and the Wilco Blue Star & Gold Star Mother’s during the week long “Field of Honor”™ activities.
Sertoma will sponsor the 2nd annual “Honor Walk” on Saturday, November 9 in San Gabriel Park (Georgetown) from 9 – 11 am.
The purpose of the “Honor Walk’ is to recognize those Veterans and First Responders who serve in harms way to keep us safe and free.
The start and finish of the event will take place at the “Field of Honor” ™ located at the Activity Field on Chamber Way. The 5k walk will have water stops along the way. A playground and rest rooms are nearby. Walkers will be given the opportunity to announce the name of the Veteran or First Responder they are walking to honor.
A nominal fee of $10 for Veterans and First Responders and $25 for other walkers ($40 for a family) is requested. The event will be posted on social media for registration, Sertoma website: gtxsertoma.org and be available the morning of the event.
Flags can be purchased and dedicated to your heroes at the Field of Honor ™ event tent.
