HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - There was no public ceremony for Memorial Day 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus health crisis. Yet a brief intimate service was held Monday morning in remembrance of those who gave all in service to the country.

Members of Hasbrouck Heights VFW Post 4591 paid tribute to those from Hasbrouck Heights and all who sacrificed for their lives. The ceremony lasted less than 15 minutes, included an opening and closing prayer, speeches, reading of the names, placing of the poppies on the monument, and playing of "Taps."

At 10 a.m., a solemn vehicle convoy, escorted by the Hasbrouck Heights Police Department and Fire Department, passed by Veterans Park, as a quiet gesture of support and honor. The convoy also passed by the Firemen's Memorial and 9/11 Memorial on the circle, and the Policemen's Memorial near Borough Hall on the Boulevard.
