Healing Field 2021
In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of 9/11
Presented by the Madison Exchange Club
The Healing Field© began as a tribute to men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to our country since September 11, 2001. The Madison Exchange Club will host a commemorative event during the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, on the Madison Green. This event will be a display of 250 3' x 5' flags. The sponsored flags will be on 8 foot poles and distanced in rows allowing people to walk amongst them and view the names and dedications of those represented by each flag. The Healing Field is a reverent tribute which strives to unite the country in the service of others.
For the 2021 Healing Field, flags can be purchased to honor:
Victims of 9/11
Child Abuse Prevention
All proceeds from this event will support the ongoing efforts of the Madison Exchange Club to support child abuse prevention, patriotism, the Madison Food Pantry and local scholarships. Purchased flags and dedication tags can be picked up after the event with an option to have flag delivered for an extra fee. Flags may also be donated to the Madison Exchange Club, which supplies flags to the Town of Madison to fly on the Boston Post Road.
Consider supporting this uniting patriotic tribute to the strength and service of Americans:
Purchase a flag and dedicate it to an individual or cause, or become a Healing Field sponsor at the info table (see hours below). All purchases and sponsorships after August 30 will not be printed on the poster or banner due to a deadline but will be added to the website along with purchases or sponsorships made during the event.
