Sandy, UT – September 2, 2010 – The Healing Field Foundation is pleased to announce the return of the Sandy City 9/11 Healing Field flag display tribute.
The public is invited to stroll among the thousands of flags that are posted in perfect rows of honor and remembrance on the beautiful green park south of Sandy City Hall at 10000 South Centennial Parkway (200 West). This is an awe inspiring opportunity to pay tribute to the victims of 9/11 and to salute those in uniform that have served our communities and nation as first responders and our armed forces.
In addition to remembering the fallen troops since that day, we hope to raise awareness of the more than 32,000 wounded military men and women and ALL of our veterans that continue to fight the battle long after the war.
Join us for our Ceremony Tribute Saturday September 11, 2010. Find out what your community and state are doing to support our Heroes and most important what you can do.
There will be special messages from city, government and military officials, music and a special military ceremony.
The tribute bridges two communities this year. Flags will also be posted at West Jordan Veterans Memorial Park, 1585 W. 7800 S. Saturday evening at 7pm the West Jordan Rodeo Arena will be the site for a Patriot Day bagpiper and band concert followed by fireworks.
The annual Healing Field tribute has become a tradition for families and visitors to attend and to volunteer. The event is open to the public and free of charge.
