FAIR LAWN, NJ - Borough Veterans will be honored with signage beginning in mid-May from photo street banners to signs on the streets where they lived.
"The Borough will be honoring some of our Veterans this year by placing banners with their photos along the [Memorial Day] parade route, specifically on Berdan Avenue," said Nicholas Magarelli, Chief of Staff at Fair Lawn Borough Hall and head of Veterans Affairs. "The banners will be up from mid-May until the 4th of July."
If the banners are received well, Magarelli said, the Borough would likely expand the program for next year.
Additionally, the borough will be honoring the 47 residents that have been killed in combat by placing a street sign on the street where they lived. The signs will include their name, combat theatre and date of death.
The Borough’s Office of Veterans Affairs is here to assist Veterans with questions and concerns. According to the last census there are 1,200 Veterans residing in Fair Lawn. The office is currently attempting to track all Veterans living in Fair Lawn in order to better serve them. To register as a Fair Lawn Veterans, please follow the below link.
