The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites military personnel and service providers to a free UC HERO networking mixer on Wednesday, August 23 at the Clubhouse at Union County’s Galloping Hill Golf Course at 3 Golf Drive in Kenilworth, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

“Experience in the military has provided many Union County residents with valuable skills and training,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. “We’ve designed this mixer to help our veterans and active duty military connect with more resources and apply their unique life skills to new opportunities for education, employment and entrepreneurship.”

The UC HERO networking mixer is free and includes complimentary food tastings.
