The inaugural event for Palm Northwest’s Healing Field was held Aug. 27.

During the event, volunteers and organizers assembled flags and placed each one on the field in preparation for the location’s remembrance event to be held Sept. 11. The flags will stay on location until Sept. 16.
Palm Northwest Mortuary and Cemetery, a provider of the Dignity Memorial premium network, is honoring the 2,996 people that lost their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Healing Field will display 2,996 American flags, each representing a victim. Palm Northwest will also construct a wall of remembrance listing the name of every victim.
