Healing Field display enjoyed in Sparta


The remaining flags from the West Michigan Healing Field continue to travel the area for display and inspire local residents. Currently residents, staff and visitors of Meadowlark Retirement Village, 65 Ida Red in Sparta, are enjoying a display of the flags. The remaining flags are available for purchase and each represent one of the people killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Those who sponsor one of the flags will receive the flag and pole, a biography of who their flag represents, and a certificate. Flags may be purchased at Bishop Hills Elder Care Community or Herman’s Boy, both in Rockford.
