On Memorial Day and Veterans Day Bernards Township honors our military with a banner salute around the Bernards Township Municipal building and town hall.
Special thanks to the Bernards Township Veteran’s Appreciation Task Force under the direction of Mayor James Baldassare who have been working on the project since early January 2020. Please take a moment to remember those who have served to preserve our freedoms and our way of life.

I want to thank our Veterans Appreciation Task Force headed by Jennifer Donohoe for having our Hero’s Banners completed and hung today around Town Hall. I also want to thank VFW Post Commander Fred Bueler, Betsy Bacot and Mona Shaw for all their help and dedication to honoring our veteran heroes just in time for Memorial Day weekend. I encourage all of our residents to take a slow ride around Town Hall and honor the service and sacrifice our veterans make so that we can all remain free. I am very proud of the work accomplished by the Task force, along with the collaboration of our amazing Township staff to make this a reality. Special thanks to our DPW for their help in hanging the banners as well.Mayor James Baldassare
