The Land of the Free


Four-year-old Bruno Niyonsenga-Sarchet took off running when his mother, Danielle Sarchet, brought him to see the rows and rows of American flags on display off Graves Mill Road last year.

For the fourth year in a row, the Rotary Club of Forest is hosting its Field of Honor project.

From Sept. 4-18, one-thousand U.S. flags will cover the lawn in front of Automated Conveyor Systems as a tribute to past and present American heroes—including healthcare workers, first responders, EMTs, firefighters, police officers, active-duty military and veterans.

The opening ceremony is Sept. 5 at 4 p.m. to recognize the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Visitors can walk through the display daily from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
