MOORPARK, Calif. – On Monday, May 27, 2019, the Moorpark Morning Rotary Club will host its third Moorpark Field of Valor. This event is a patriotic tribute honoring all veterans for their dedication and service to preserving the nation’s security, independence and freedom.

An arrangement of 200 flags will be proudly displayed at Tierra Rejada Park in Moorpark, California, each dedicated in honor of, or in memory of, a friend or family member who proudly served in the armed forces. A company or individual can sponsor or purchase 3- by 4- feet flags honoring a veteran friend or family member. All proceeds from the Field of Valor event will divided among various nonprofit organizations that provide direct support to local veterans and the families of our deployed military.

In addition to the flag display, there will be food available to purchase, face painting from 12-3 p.m. and kids’ activities provided throughout the day by Girl Scout Troup 60829. 

“This event is truly special to me after witnessing soldiers come home and adjust to what we often take for granted as our everyday normal,” said Pauline Pitman, event chair of the Moorpark Field of Valor. “I have the utmost respect for the men and women who serve our county and I am proud to help make this event possible in honor of our veterans.”

​Flag viewing will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with an opening ceremony at 1 p.m. which will include color guards and bagpipes. Throughout the event, various guest speakers and singers will provide an exciting and magnificent tribute to our veterans. The event will conclude with a closing ceremony at 4:30 p.m. The Moorpark Morning Rotary Club invites you to bring the entire family along with a blanket, picnic basket and personal tributes to this free event.
