Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market: Westerville on Memorial Day

As Memorial Day approaches, the Westerville Sunrise Rotary is presenting the Field of Heroes over Memorial Day weekend (May 29th - 31st).

Field of Heroes is an installation of 2000 American flags to honor those who have and do sacrifice and serve. The Field of Heroes is located not far from Uptown Westerville at County Line Road and Cleveland Avenue, across from the Community Rec Center.

This year, the installation will also feature the Vietnam Memorial Moving Wall.

On May 27th, escorted by Westerville Police and the Ohio Patriot Guard Riders Motorcycle Brigade between 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., the Moving Wall will arrive in Westerville on a route that rolls south on State Street from Polaris Parkway, through Uptown Westerville, west on Schrock Road and north on Cleveland Ave. Organizers are encouraging folks to stand along the procession route to honor the veterans, the wall, and the holiday.

You may be interested in attending or know someone who would be, so please pass the word if you will.

Westerville's Memorial Day parade begins Monday, May 31st at 9:45 a.m. at State & College in Uptown Westerville.

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost. - Arthur Ashe

The vendors and management of the Uptown Westerville Farmers' Market wish you a safe, happy Memorial Day holiday weekend.
