The Friends of the Jacobus Vanderveer House will host Bedminster’s Field of Honor® at River Road Park. The tribute will celebrate our nation’s independence, and honor all those who have served our country with pride and dignity, with a display of more than 200 American flags in the north field of River Road Park along Route 202/206 in Bedminster beginning May 14 through July 9. On Saturday, May 21 the community is invited to stroll through the Field of Honor®, picnic on the grounds, listen to live music by the White House Wind Symphony and enjoy historic demonstrations from 11 am to 3 pm.
