CLARK, NJ - The Clark Town Council joined the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders in recognizing September 13, as POW/MIA Remembrance Day.   The Clark Council passed the resolution at the last workshop meeting.

In honor of day, the public is welcome to attend a commemoration of POW/MIA Remembrance Day in front of the Union County Courthouse at 2 Broad Street in Elizabeth on Friday, September 13. The ceremony will start promptly at 11:15 a.m.

“Please join us as we pause and honor the sacrifices of our military and their families,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski. “This annual public ceremony provides an important reminder that the Union County community will never forget our service men and women who were prisoners of war, and those who are missing in action.”

If there is rain on that day, the event will be moved indoors to the Freeholder Meeting Room on the 6th Floor of the Union County Administration Building, behind the Courthouse at 10 Elizabethtown Plaza. For more information about the commemoration ceremony, call the Freeholder Board at 908-527-4200.
