NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The New Providence Lions held an impromptu “Tribute to our Veterans” in Veterans Park on Friday to remember the courageous men and women who died in our nations service.

 The Lions march each year in the New Providence Memorial Day Parade. “Because the parade was canceled this year due to the virus a few Lions gathered to pay tribute to our veterans,” said Ed Morgan, President of the New Providence Lions Club.

The American Flag in the photo is a special flag that the Lions carry each year in the parade. It was given to the club by the United States Marine Corps as a thank you for their help in collecting clothing, and personal items for a village they were helping in Iraq. This village was destroyed by Isis and the villagers were in desperate need. “Where there is a need there a Lion.”
