Healing Field has patriotic message on 9-11

September 8, 2005

Albany -- South Georgians can show their support of American troops this Sunday. On the anniversary of September 11th, The Healing Field at the Albany Mall will present a patriotic ceremony.

Members of the Southwest Georgia Exchange Club and volunteers began setting up one thousand American flags Thursday morning in a field beside the Albany Mall. This is the Healing Field.

A national program that commemorates the victims of September 11th, while also honoring American troops still fighting the terrorists that attacked the U.S.A. Exchangite Dick Neff said "we're trying to make these flags for September 11th be the same as the firecrackers for the Fourth of July."

Sunday at two O-clock, a Dedication Ceremony will be held at the Healing Field, with patriotic music. Congressman Sanford Bishop and Mayor Willie Adams are among the speakers.

 The one thousand flags will be sold for thirty dollars each after the ceremony, with the money donated to the Children at Risk Foundation to fight child abuse.
