The public is invited to join Rotarians and Wayne Community College for the Field of Honor
closing ceremony on Nov. 16 at 4 p.m., on the front lawn of Wayne Community
An unrelated event at Wayne Community College necessitated the change in time from
1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The ceremony will conclude this year’s tribute to those who by the flag exemplify
“Service Above Self”.
The brief ceremony will feature comments by Captains Jonathon & Dawn Whitaker, of the Salvation
Army of Goldsboro, followed by a performance by Captain Whitaker.
Flags on display have been dedicated to show support and honor to active-duty military, veterans, first
responders, and neighbors, tangibly and visibly. Proceeds will raise funds to support
the charitable programs of Rotary International and the Goldsboro Club.
The display will be broken down on Nov. 18. Beginning the week after Thanksgiving
(Nov. 23), those who requested that their flags be returned to them can pick them up at the
front desk of the Wayne County Public Library on East Ash Street in Goldsboro.
The flags will remain at the library through the end of December. Any flags that have not been picked up will be donated to the Tuscarora Council of the Boy Scouts of America for proper disposal.
The generosity of the community helps to support the programs and projects of the Goldsboro Rotary Club while providing additional support to the Foundation of Wayne Community College.
The fifth annual Field of Honor® will return next fall and the Rotarians hope you will consider supporting the event again.
