About Us

Creating Community

Our Story

It was September 28, 2016.  Members of the Rotary Club of Asheboro and

Board members of the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce were

discussing the negative divide happening in our country during the contentious

run-up to the 2016 Presidential election.  We wanted to find a way to remind

people of what we have in common rather than focus on what separates us. 

It was on that day the decision was made to hold the first Field of Honor to

celebrate the heroes among us.  The best available dates for the South Asheboro Middle School, whose ball field has become home to this event, was Veterans Day weekend.  So in just 45 days, our two organizations worked very hard with the

Asheboro City Schools, the City of Asheboro, and a number of local

businesses to host our first-ever Field of Honor.

The two organizations have continued to hold the Field of Honor every November Veterans Day holiday.  The funds raised are used by the two 501c3 Foundations

of the Rotary Club of Asheboro and the Asheboro/Randolph Chamber of Commerce.  Net proceeds are used toward educational scholarships, and events and activities that benefit our communities.
