Honoring Our Heroes

September 7 @ 9:00 am - September 8 @ 3:00 pm

As a testament to service members who made the ultimate sacrifice, we are excited to partner with the Colonial Charitable Foundation to host the “Honoring Our Heroes” event. We will be bringing the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall to JetBlue Park on Sept. 7-8 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. This family-friendly event is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to pay respects, to learn our history and to honor these courageous men and women who gave their lives for our country.

Those in attendance will be able to touch the wall and rub pencil over paper where their loved ones are listed, just as many do to preserve a memento of the wall in Washington. An area for solemn reflection will be set up nearby.

Money from the sale of food and beer at the event will go toward local charities that promote education, fight hunger and support veterans.
