NEWTON, NJ - The Town of Newton will be showing its support and appreciation for Veterans all around the world on Wednesday, Nov. 11 by turning on green lights at Town Hall.
All residents are invited to participate in the Green Light A Vet Campaign, by changing one light in a visible location to green and keeping it lit every day as a symbol of appreciation and support for veterans.
The video on the campaign website, http://www.greenlightavet.com/ says, “America’s veterans are some of our nation’s bravest, hardest-working men and women. However, it is hard to show them the appreciation they deserve, when back home and out of uniform, they’re more camouflaged than ever.”
Marvin Feil, a resident of Newton, brought the campaign to the attention of the Town Council during the November 9 meeting. “I am asking residents and the town to join this campaign in support of our veterans by displaying a green light in their homes on Wednesday, November 11.”
“Green is the color of hope, renewal and well-being… The simple action of changing one light to green is intended to spark a national conversation regarding recognition of veterans, and ‘greenlight’ them forward as valued members of our communities.”
Visit the Town Hall on Wednesday, November 11 to see the green lights that the Town of Newton will light to show their support for veterans around the world. Show your support and appreciation for our veterans by turning on a green light inside or outside of your home on Veterans Day.
