Hunterdon’s Veterans Headstone Cleaning To Continue In 2023
All Are Welcome To Volunteer To Help Honor Deceased Veterans
Hunterdon County’s Veterans headstone cleaning program proved to be both successful and popular during 2022 with nearly 800 headstones cleaned by over 150 volunteers in eleven cemeteries around the county and will commence again this spring, County Commissioner Board Director Zach Rich has announced.
Commissioner Susan J. Soloway, who participated in the program last year, stated, “The headstone cleaning program is a very worthwhile project where enthusiastic volunteers demonstrate that our deceased Veterans are not forgotten.”
“Many families with children have participated and some have adopted Veterans’ gravesites for continued maintenance. I was honored to participate and look forward to continuing to be engaged in the program this year,” Soloway, the Board’s co-liaison for Veterans, added.
Individuals interested in participating in the headstone cleaning program or desiring more information should contact Rich Booth.
