Thank you to everyone who joined us Nov. 11, as we gathered to celebrate Veterans Day and honor all those who have served this great country. Thank you to all of our Veterans, guest speakers, including Washington Township Police Department, Council members and Washington Township Veterans Advisory Board for sharing the importance of this holiday. We cannot thank our Veterans enough or truly ever repay them for their service and commitment to this country, we are eternally grateful to you. We will never forget what you have done to defend our freedom. We hope this ceremony will serve as a reminder of our commitment to you.
