The Mayors of Fanwood and Scotch Plains, Colleen Mahr and Kevin Glover, and other officials, today visited local businesses to thank them for their financial support of the Memorial Day Concert for Heros at the Fanwood train station. Several hundred residents of both towns came with their lawn chairs to hear the concert of patriotic music and speeches in memory of fallen soldiers. The concert, a joint effort by Scotch Plains Township and the Borough of Fanwood, is made possible by donations from many local businesses and individuals. Today, Mayors Mahr and Glover began handing out plaques honoring these businesses for their participation.
