Flag and Wall that Heals together in Riverview

The annual Memorial Day Circle of Flags display in Young Patriots Park will have a little more symbolism this year as the event coincides with the city’s hosting of The Wall That Heals, a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The Wall That Heals will be displayed in Young Patriots Park from May 27-31. The flags will be on display beginning May 25.

If you will be displaying your previous year’s flag, there will be no charge but it must have the original tag on it and dropped off to Ron Miller at Riverview Towing (734-285-4343) for inspection.

The event is co-sponsored by the city of Riverview and American Legion Post 389 and the event committee hopes to have 300 flags flying in the park during the week.

Flags are $20 and lawn signs are $20. The order deadline is May 1. The flag package includes one 3’x 5’ American flag on a six-foot pole with mounting bracket

Make checks payable to: Riverview Fallen Fund.

The Wall will be on display May 28-31, 2020. Volunteers are needed starting Wednesday, May 27. 

The Wall That Heals is a three quarter size traveling exact replica of the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C. The success of The Wall That Heals comes from those who volunteer their time. Please visit our signup genius at signupgenius.com or search dmitchell@cityofriverview.com at signupgenius.com.
