Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes and Mercer County Veteran Services invite the public to attend the County’s Veterans Day Ceremony and Celebration on Sunday, Nov. 7, at 11 a.m. at the Mercer County Office Park gym, 1440 Parkside Ave., Ewing. A face mask is required for entry.
“We value our veterans for their courage, their willingness to fight for democratic principles, and their contributions to the community,” Mr. Hughes said. “I hope you’ll join me in paying tribute to all Mercer County veterans on November 7th.”
Mr. Hughes will give opening remarks at the event and U.S. Army Col. Terrence Sommers will serve as keynote speaker. The placement of a wreath to honor veterans’ service, and a salute to fallen veterans by Marine Corps League Trenton Detachment 207 will follow. This year’s program will also feature a performance by the Trenton Central High School JROTC Drill Team and a medley of military songs by singer Jill Pakman. Refreshments will be available.
Vendors representing a number of agencies serving veterans will be on hand to provide information about their organizations and the services available to local veterans and their family members.
