WARREN, NJ - Warren residents, Let’s Make Some Noise for Our Local Heroes! Get your noisemakers ready for Thursday.
The residents of Warren Township have been serviced by our healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, pharmacists, first responders and others who have given of themselves to provide needed services to all of us during the Coronavirus response.
In an effort to recognize the service of these heroic individuals, on Thursday, April 23, 2020, between 7:00 p.m. to 7:05 p.m. the Township Committee is urging all residents to go outside and ring a bell, blow a whistle, honk your horn, bang a pot, or clap your hands to thank all of those who have served us. We would like to continue showing our support in this way every Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. until further notice.
Township resident Debora Spingarn reached out to Jane Asch of the Office of Emergency Management, who then referred the idea to Deputy Mayor George Lazo and the Township Committee. The Township Committee expresses their appreciation for bringing this concept to our attention.
Deputy Mayor George Lazo, who is leading this effort stated, “Ms. Spingarn and I wanted to spread some positive energy, and encourage Warren residents to take a moment to thank our healthcare workers, first responders, grocery clerks, pharmacists, and others who are providing necessary services. It is time to say a community-wide thank you.”
Mayor Marion stated on behalf of the Township Committee, “This is just one more example of Warren residents taking positive steps during a difficult time.”
Residents, businesses, and houses of worship throughout the Township are encouraged to participate in this show of support.
