The Rockford Area Community Endowment is now hosting the 2011 West Michigan Healing Field® . This  9/11 flag memorial invites visitors take in a beautiful display of 3,200 U.S. flags.  This living display of heroism is a temporary patriotic tribute to the strength and unity of Americans, and is commemorating the 10 year anniversary of all those who died September 11, 2001.

“We will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2011 attack on our country and those who lost their lives that day with the West Michigan Healing Field,” said Steve Gerencer, Volunteer Chair of West Michigan Healing Field. “These 3,200 American flags will be an incredible visual memorial, making sure we never forget those victims or the support of our local safety personnel and military that put our safety ahead of their own every day.”

Now through September 13, the flags are displayed on a three-acre site at Cannonsburg Ski Area. Special programs are planned for each day, with dignitaries paying tribute and reading the names of those who lost their lives on 9/11, including the 21 victims from Michigan. West Michigan is one of only a few cities in the country with a display of this magnitude.
