After two years of delay, the Project Poppy art installation will be installed on its dedication day on Monday, May 30.
There will be 3,837 poppies made by local volunteers cascading from the left corner of the high school to the grounds of Veterans Memorial Grove. Each poppy planted will symbolize a fallen soldier from New Jersey who served in World War I. From the library roof to the front of the lawn, its visual will give pause and reflection to all residents and visitors.
The art installation will remain until July 4, 2022.
