17th Anniversary of 9/11
What: September 11th Healing Field® Memorial
Where: Tempe Beach Park
When: September 8th – 11th 2018 from 6am-8pm
Why: Honor those killed on September 11th, 2001
The 15th annual Tempe Healing Field® tribute will once again be held at Tempe Beach Park September 8th – 11th 2018 from 6am to 8pm each day.
If you have never taken the time to go to Tempe Town Lake to visit this memorial, you are missing something very special. What a cool tribute to the innocent lives lost from a cowardly attack on our freedoms.
Beginning Saturday, September 8th, volunteers will pound nearly 3,000 pieces of rebar, will erect eight foot tall American Flags, with a personal bio card on each flag…most importantly, we will honor those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. If you are interested in volunteering to set up or stand down the Healing Field, join us at 6am on the 8th or 6am on the 12th.
Per our friends at the City of Tempe:
Please join us in honoring the nearly 3000 victims of the September 11th attacks on our country. The Memorial will have three thousand 3’X5′ flags standing 8′ tall in perfect rows at Tempe Beach Park. This beautiful display will fly a patriotic tribute to the strength and unity of Americans, honoring all those who died September 11, 2001.
Watch this first video and listen as the planes fly overhead. What a reminder of the day that we vow to never forget.
May God bless America. Now and forever…
