MARLBORO – In observance of Veterans Day, Mayor Jonathan Hornik has directed the Police Division Honor Guard to provide the laying of a memorial wreath at the Marlboro Veterans Memorial. The ceremony will begin promptly at 11 a.m. Nov. 11.
The memorial is in front of the Marlboro municipal complex at 1979 Township Drive. Members of the public are invited to attend, according to a press release.
Music will be provided by the Marlboro High School Band and Orchestra led by Patrick Dalton. Light refreshments, provided by the Veterans and Volunteers Committee, will follow the ceremony. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved inside Town Hall.
“We were proud to be recognized this past June by the New Jersey State Veterans Chamber of Commerce as the first in the state to be a certified ‘Veteran Friendly Municipality.’ As a community, I believe it is incumbent upon us to support our veterans, helping them economically and holistically. This ceremony gives the public an opportunity to express our appreciation for veterans’ service and sacrifice,” Hornik said.
“I thank the Township Council for unanimously passing a resolution that honored our commitment to veterans above and beyond the certification required. I especially want to acknowledge the leadership, support and guidance of Councilman Jeff Cantor, a colonel, U.S. Army (Ret.) on this and all veteran concerns,” the mayor said.
