Event Summary

Tempe Exchange Club will host the Annual Tempe Healing Field for the Greater Phoenix community from Sept. 7 to 11 at Tempe Beach Park. This inspiring formation of U.S. flags will, as in years past, honors the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that the mature may remember and that youth may learn. The magnitude of loss will be represented by an uplifting display of the Stars and Stripes, which creates an inspiring and memorable experience for volunteers and visitors alike.
