THE WALL THAT HEALS IS COMING TO METHUEN

Thursday, September 29, 2022

In 1982, The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) dedicated The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. Since its dedication, it has become one of the most visited memorials on the National Mall with over 5 million visits each year, yet millions of others are still unable to see The Wall in Washington D.C. In 1996, VVMF recognized a need to provide a traveling version of The Memorial and The Wall That Heals (TWTH) was dedicated, replicating The Wall experience as much as possible. The Wall That Heals is the largest replica, the only one and the only one accompanied by the mobile Education Center. The elements coupled with the close involvement of VVMF staff and significant preparations by hosts guarantee an experience for every community selected to host The Wall That Heals.

HOW CAN YOU HELP:

We need volunteers to help set up The Wall on Wednesday morning, September 28 and take it down on Sunday morning, October 2. In addition, The Wall must be manned 24 hours a day by volunteers. Volunteers will be organized into shifts of 3 or 4 depending on the time of day and each shift will last 4 hours.

TO PARTICIPATE:

Sign up is easy. You can sign up as a Greeter or to schedule a private tour of the wall.
