"We have been overwhelmed by the positive response from the community about our new location this year at The Grove at Williamson Place across from The Avenue on Medical Center Parkway. " - 2017 Co-Chair Kelsey Ketron
This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to come together to honor and remember those who have served and are serving our community and our country, as well as those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
"We are honored to host the Healing Field at The Grove. We invite everyone to come out, bring the family and make a day of it. Enjoy a picnic in the grove, take a walk through the flags, honor your hero by sponsoring a flag to be flown on the field. Pick some strawberries while you're here." -Marshall Campbell, The Grove
