Geauga Park District and Geauga Veterans’ Services Commission are pleased to be bringing a national touring exhibition called The Wall That Heals to Geauga County Fairgrounds Thursday through Sunday, September 8th through 11th.
The Wall That Heals was created by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) to travel to communities across the United States. The exhibit features a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C., approximately 250 feet in length, chevron-shaped and complete with the 58,249 names of those killed or missing in action from the conflict. Accompanying the wall is also a mobile Education Center, featuring newly upgraded digital displays, telling the story of the Vietnam War era and the Memorial.
This being the first time in its 20-season existence that The Wall That Heals will have visited Geauga County, organizers expect it to draw thousands of people over its four-day stay at 14373 North Cheshire Street in Burton.
Visitors will be welcome free of charge 24 hours a day during the exhibition. Additionally, groups are invited to schedule visit to The Wall That Heals to gain a heightened awareness of the impact and legacy of the war, as well as leadership, citizenship and character.
