Tomorrow, Friday, September 6th, is the beginning of Patriot Week. From September sixth at 10AM to September thirteenth at the Prescott Valley Civic Center Theater on the Green, there will be the 9th annual Healing Fields event.
Healing fields is special and awing event held every year over Patriots Week to remember the event of 9/11, and the lives lost that day.
“Commemorating the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks of 2001, Prescott Valley will continue its proud 8-year tradition as Northern Arizona residents come together to experience this awe-inspiring display of the Stars and Stripes. 3,000 U.S. flags flying at the Civic Center will again create an unforgettable panorama of optimism and healing. Area residents may visit the display at the Prescott Valley Town Center from Friday, September 6th through Friday, September 13th of 2019. The Prescott Valley Healing Field display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation. We invite all to visit the Prescott Valley’s display and walk with us among the posted flags. The display is open to all without charge. The North Arizona Healing Field is a not to be missed event.”
