TAPPAN, NY – A patriotic display has been assembled on the Manse Law Field in Tappan by the Carl A Schelin Post 1271, Tappan Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary, and the Tappan Reform Church in partnership with the support of the Colonial Flag Foundation and the Field of Honor.

Together, they created an awe-inspiring panorama, recognized today by the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office.

“300 hundred United States flags fly in a solemn formation at the Manse Lawn field in Tappan from May 14 to June 18, 2022,” the district attorney’s office reported. “This display brings the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes. Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story.”

Flags were sponsored to honor individuals currently serving in our active-duty military, fallen servicemen and women, first responders, veterans, hometown heroes, frontline workers, 9/11 victims and COVID-19 victims.

Michael Holihan was the project leader for this display.
