 Blessed Titus Brandsma Council # 16519

Middletown, NY 10940


After close consultation of our membership, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Fund group, and our partners, we have made the difficult decision that The Wall That

Heals replica exhibit planned for the Middletown NY site August 27th - 30th has been​


Having spent the past year coordinating with our various committees, local

veterans groups, government and law enforcement, volunteers, partners, and our

sponsors; we are genuinely upset and share in this community's disappointment. In light

of COVID-19, protecting the health and safety of our veterans, event staff, and the

thousands of would-be visitors to The Wall That Heals​ exhibit is our top priority.​

Although we considered many safeguarding measures to attempt to address public

safety concerns, ultimately we concluded we could not ensure the level of care that we

and the public expect for an event of this size.

We have been in touch with our major sponsors, as well as partners, and they

have graciously pledged both their financial and volunteer backing for a future event.

We want to thank all involved for their support, open discussions, and encouragement.

As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when our community comes

together. For this reason, we fully commit to bringing The Wall That Heals​ to​

Middletown, NY next year, and are pursuing new dates with the Vietnam Veterans

Memorial Fund.​

A special thank you to our lead sponsor ConEd / Orange & Rockland​ for their​ unwavering support in bringing this amazing event to our community. Also, a

tremendous thanks to the support and efforts of local American Legion Post 151​ , our​ host city of Middletown​ and the town of​ Wallkill​ , and of course our host site​ Our Ladyof Mt. Carmel Church. We look forward to announcing our new event calendar, and​

inviting everyone to be an integral part in spreading the Memorial’s legacy. For more

information and updates please visit our website​ . Thank you​

to everyone involved for your patience and continued support.
