Purple Heart                  Purple Heart Trail

Join us for an evening of celebration and remembrance of our local Purple Heart recipients. 

This event will take place at Clark Park beginning at 6:00PM.  A Proclamation will be made followed by a dessert social where all can gather with families and recipients of the Purple Heart and share stories.

The Purple Heart Trail program began in 1992 at Mt. Vernon, Virginia.  The goal was to make the public aware of the Purple Heart Medal and what the medal represented.  The Purple Heart designation is an "Outward expression of an internal desire to recognize and honor recipients of the Purple Heart".
