HUNTINGTON, WV – Healing Field – 2011

September 2011 –

Spring Hill Cemetery will be the host to a 2011 Healing Field® 9/11 flag memorial where you will behold a beautiful display of three thousand U.S. flags.
These 3’X5′ flags will stand 8′ tall in perfect rows. This living display of heroism will fly as a temporary patriotic tribute to the strength and unity of Americans, and will commemorate the 10 year anniversary of all those who died September 11, 2001.

Please join us and walk this awe inspiring display of flags. This is the perfect opportunity for all of us to unite as a community to remember and honor those who died in this tragic event.
