Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli discussed several topics in his updates on Facebook providing important information for the residents of Prescott, Arizona.
Here is the update for September 7, 2021
Here are some of the things I’ll be mentioning today:
- September 11
- 9/11 Healing Field
- Yavapai County Fair
- HopeFest Arizona
- Rainer and Friends Ballet Gala
- Empty Bowls
- Kiwanis Club Auction
Next weekend is the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a time when members of a terrorist group attacked the United States, hijacking planes and flying them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. A fourth flight was also hijacked, but passengers attempted to wrest control of the plane from the terrorists and ended up crashing in a Pennsylvania field. These attacks resulted in nearly 3,000 deaths and over 25,000 injuries, plus long-term health consequences for unknown numbers of people.
Here in Prescott, many events are taking place, and several plans to honor those that died or were injured on that day.
As a community, we will never forget.
9/11 Healing Field
The Healing Field will be on full display in Prescott Valley. It starts on September 10th, and will remain through September 17th.
There is a flag for every person lost during the 9/11 tragedy, and they also honor our 19 Firefighters who died at Yarnell.
Each flagpole bears information about the victims of the attacks. Many visitors have found the names of friends and family, and others have come to pay their respects to the victims and the first responders who gave their lives trying to rescue them.
If you have not been to this moving display, I encourage you to stop in at any time. It will definitely touch your heart.
It is at 7501 E Skoog Blvd on the Civic Center Lawn in Prescott Valley.
Yavapai County Fair
The 2021 Yavapai County Fair opens on Thursday, September 9th at 9 AM, and continues throughout the weekend until 6 PM on Sunday. This year’s theme is, “Celebrating Our First Responders”. On Saturday, September 11, there will be many tributes throughout the day and on the stage to the victims of 9/11.
You might think of the Fair as just a carnival, but there is so much more. Kids get to show off the animals they’ve raised all year. Saturday evening is the Youth Livestock BBQ and Auction starting at 4 PM.
Friday is family fun night, and it is free to participate in the many activities held at the Arena.
Did you know that they also include the Grand Canyon Pro Rodeo on Sunday? It’s a complete rodeo! There is no additional charge to watch the Rodeo, it is included in your fair admission.
Of course, for those that do love the Carnival, you can get pre-sale wrist bands right now if you go to their website. Plus Family Passes are available.
In downtown Prescott on Saturday, HopeFest Arizona will take place, with a Community Outreach, live music, resources, connections, and services dedicated to serve Veterans, Military, First Responders, and vulnerable people in Yavapai County.
This event is free to the Public with a Family Fun Zone.
At noon on 9/11, there will be a 20th Anniversary Commemoration Ceremony.
