On September 10-12, the Laurel Exchange Club will host its Field of Flags display. The Healing Field is an inspirational and uplifting display of one thousand American flags standing in a solemn and magnificent formation to remember and honor those killed in the terrorist attacks of 9/11, those that served our country then and now, whether veterans, active military, first responders, police, firefighters and ALL of the Heroes in Our Lives.
The field next to South Elementary School along S. 5th Street, Laurel, will be transformed into a panorama of red, white and blue that cannot be adequately described, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten. Our community, friends, and family all share a common thread when it comes to a loss of a Hero, and the Healing Field® is the perfect way to express our love and gratitude to those Heroes.
You can honor your own Hero by sponsoring an individual flag dedicated to him or her! Corporate/group sponsorships are also available. Please visit mylaurelmt.com for more sponsorship options. All profits will go toward local non-profit organizations serving the Laurel area.
There will be no charge to visit the Healing Field display. Drive by and self-guided visits only, masks and social distancing encouraged. This is an event not to be missed.
They are looking for volunteers for setup and takedown. As well as volunteers at the booth.
