Patriotic Observance Advisory Board

Patriotic Observance Advisory Board:  The Board is appointed each year by the Township Council.  Its members represent various civic and veterans' organizations as well as the community at large.  The Board has the overall responsibility to coordinate the Memorial Day, Flag Day and Veterans' Day ceremonies.  It also organizes the annual Fourth of July parade and makes recommendations to the Council on other matters of a patriotic nature such as placing of names on the Municipal Complex memorial, as well as its maintenance.  The Board's goal is to continue the recognition of all patriotic events and the education of the public regarding their participation and understanding.

Council Liaison: Councilwoman Karen Orgen
