The Healing Field© began as a tribute to men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to our country since September 11, 2001. The Madison Exchange Club will host a commemorative event during the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, on the Madison Green. This event will be a display of over 100 3′ x 5′ flags. The sponsored flags will be on 8 foot poles and distanced in rows allowing people to walk amongst them and view the names and dedications of those represented by each flag. The Healing Field© is a reverent tribute which strives to unite the country in the service of others.
For the 2021 Healing Field©, flags can be purchased to honor:
| * Victims of 9/11,
|| * Fallen and Active Military,
| * Veterans,
|| * First Responders,
| * Covid heroes,
|| * Service Canines, and
| * Child Abuse Prevention
All proceeds from the sale of flags will support the ongoing efforts of the Madison Exchange Club to support child abuse prevention, patriotism, the Madison Food Pantry and local scholarships. After Closing Ceremonies, on September 14 families and businesses that purchased the flags will pick up their flag and dedication card on The Green. Those who live out of town have the option to have their flag shipped to them for an extra fee. A flag may also be donated to the Madison Exchange Club, which supplies flags to the Town of Madison to fly along the Boston Post Road.
