Welcome to “The Healing Field”

Riverfront park 2006

2006 marked the 5th anniversary of the horrific events of Sept 11th, 2001. Working with businesses, community leaders, city officials and individuals seeking to honor the victims, the Exchange Clubs of Salem / Keizer spear headed an effort to do just that! What began as a simple way for one person to visualize and comprehend the sheer enormity of human loss that occurred in the terrorist attacks and as hundreds of volunteers gathered to help, it soon became evident that something much more was emerging. It became a personal gesture of support, a tangible expression of mourning, and a very real healing experience!

All proceeds from flag sales during the event benefitted

E.S.C.A.P.E’s Child Abuse Prevention Program,
Military Emergency Relief Fund, and other charities.
