Sussex County Veterans Picnic

The Sussex County Department of Human Services, Division of Senior Services, Municipal Alliance and the Veterans Committee will be sponsoring a Veterans Picnic for veterans and their families. This event is scheduled to take place at the American Legion Post 213, located at 915 Route 23 (North), Sussex, NJ, on Saturday, August 17, 2013, from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

The veterans attending the picnic will be given the opportunity to become better informed about services available to them. Agencies participating in the picnic include the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, New Jersey Department of Military Affairs, Sussex County Division of Senior Services, Sussex County Municipal Alliance, and the Sussex County Mental Health Board.

With summer here, this is a great time to get together with family, friends and a few new acquaintances to share some good food and gather information about services that may be available to you. Lorraine Hentz, Director of the Sussex County Division of Senior Services said, "This is a wonderful opportunity to show our appreciation for the sacrifices our veterans and their families have made for our County. It provides the ability for veterans and their families to network with each other, access information, and build new connections to the community."

Pre-registration is required by August 5, 2013. For additional information and to RSVP for the picnic, contact the Sussex County Department of Human Services, Division of Senior Services at 973-579-0555 ext.1221 or seniorservices@sussex.nj.us.
