OLD BRIDGE TOWNSHIP TO HONOR VETERANS WITH VIRTUAL CEREMONY ON MEMORIAL DAY
Old Bridge Township, NJ – On Monday, May 25, 2020 Old Bridge Township will be hosting a Virtual Memorial Day Ceremony. While the event is closed to the public, residents can watch the ceremony live at 10 a.m. on the Township’s Facebook page: facebook.com/obtown.
We look forward to our annual Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony, and we are truly disappointed that we have to cancel the event due to the current circumstances. However, we are happy to host a virtual ceremony on Memorial Day in order to keep our promise that we will always remember.
“It is important for us to pay tribute and respect those who served our great country. On this Memorial Day, we thank all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. We thank them for their courage, bravery and dedication to protect America,” said Mayor Owen Henry.
In addition to our virtual ceremony, we are creating a virtual tribute to all who have served. We encourage residents to participate in this project by submitting a photo or short video showing your support for veterans. If you’re a veteran or would like to honor a veteran in your life, please submit a service photo with the veteran’s name, branch, rank, service years and if they served during a conflict.
Please visit oldbridge.com/memorialday for details. All submissions must be sent by Wednesday, May 20, 2020.
For questions, please call (732) 721-5600, Ext. 4010, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
