“The Recreation Department is proud to arrange rides for Veterans who are unable to march. This is an important national holiday, and the veterans who have risked their lives for our country should be celebrated and accommodated in every way possible,” said Director of Recreation Michael Sceurman.

Anyone with a classic car is encouraged to participate and asked to email Director Sceurman at msceurman@bloomfieldtwpnj.com with the year, make and model of their car along with the owner’s name. Please send emails with “Memorial Day” as the subject matter.
