On the Memorial Day weekend, May 24th- 27th, Rotary Club of Green Valley partnered with USO presented its 2nd annual Field of Honor at Cornerstone Park in Henderson. The park was filled with the sight of more than a thousand American flags throughout the weekend. The money that was raised from the flag sales were distributed by Rotary Club of Green Valley to local charities including The Henderson Food Bank, Henderson Teacher Mini Grants and other local organizations. All the flags were placed and reinforced by volunteers from the USO and Rotary Club of Green Valley.
On the 27th, Rotary Club of Green Valley held a Memorial Day ceremony in the park with all the flags behind the audience. Keynote speakers include Commander of VFW 3848 Dan Adkins, Former Mayor of Henderson Andy Haffen, Councilwoman Gerri Schroder and Congresswoman Susie Lee.
