The Westerville Sunrise Rotary Club is seeking volunteers to help with the Field of Heroes. In addition to the thousands of expected visitors who simply wish to walk amongst the flags, we will hold numerous programs and take onsite orders throughout the weekend; all these activities are staffed completely by community volunteers.
As the first field of its kind in Central Ohio, the Field of Heroes has become a truly unique and inspiring event. More than two hundred volunteers are required to run the Field of Heroes each year. Volunteer opportunities range from field greeters and order-takers to overnight security personnel. We assure you that you will find it a truly rewarding experience.
In addition to organizing and running the Field of Heroes for the last nine years, the Westerville Sunrise Rotary Club has organized the Chilly Open for 22 years. As such, we know what it takes to for an event of this scale. A partnership of community organizations and businesses will come together to staff the event and to underwrite some of the expenses of the annual Field of Heroes event. We look forward to your support.
