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 8 through 11.

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 24-7 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.
