Healing Field flags still available

Lion Deck Andrejczak shows off the flag, certificate and biography of one of the flags his service club purchased. This flag represents Terrance Aiken, age 30, who died September 11, 2001.

Although the five days of honoring the memory of those killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the West Michigan Healing Field, is over, opportunities to share in remembering the individuals killed remain. Flags that have not yet been purchased each represent one of the people who died that day.

“We don’t want these to just go and be in a closet somewhere,” said organizer Sue Bodenner of the flags and the biographies of the people they represent.

The Rockford Lions Club purchased some of the flags, one representing Terrance Aiken, who was 30 years old when he was killed September 11, 2001.

Each flag purchased includes a certificate recognizing the sponsorship and a biography of the individual it honors, whether they were a civilian working in the towers that day or a rescue personnel, and what family they left behind. The flags can be purchased at Bishop Hills Elder Care Community, Herman’s Boy or United Bank in Rockford.
