Each year the Carl A Schelin Post 1271 of Tappan, NY in partnership with the Volunteer Fire Association of Tappan, and the Tappan Reformed Church recognize our fallen veterans and active servicemen and women by hosting a Memorial Day parade through town.

The parade commences at the Masonic Hall on Western Highway and concludes at the Tappan Triangle in front of the Tappan Reformed Church.

We are excited to commence the 3nd Annual Field of HonorĀ® in Tappan, NY! We thank all of last years' sponsors and hope you join us again in providing this great display in the center of Tappan. United States flags will fly in a solemn formation at the Manse Lawn field from May 18th through July 6th of 2024. We expect over 300 flags to produce a stirring display which will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes. Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be 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. This unique event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to remember and honor our many heroes.

The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as people. Americans become stronger by meeting the challenges of history and overcoming hardships. That is just who we are. The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.

This moving display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships, and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by providing a corporate sponsor, sponsoring a flag, or making a donation. This event is open to all not just Tappan residents! Please visit the Tappan Fire Department any Monday evening 7 to 9 PM for a sponsor form, visit our businesses in town, or our website to learn more about this event at www.healingfield.org/event/tappanny24
