A large contingent of Hunterdon County Veterans will honored for their military service, as Hunterdon County’s 2018 4-H & Agricultural Fair holds its Opening Ceremonies, on Wednesday August 22, at 4 pm, at the Roger K. Everitt Fairgrounds, South County Park, in Ringoes. The Fair runs through Sunday, August 26.

The Freeholders are proud to be a part of the Veterans Recognition Medal program. Let’s never forget that military service entails sacrifice and dedication, and we cannot say thank you enough to those who have served our Nation.”

Freeholder Suzanne Lagay, the Board’s liaison for the Health Division, joined Department of Public Safety and Health Services Director George Wagner, Health Division Head and County Entomologist Tadhgh Rainey, County Health Officer Karen DeMarco, specialists in Public Health Nursing, Environmental Health, Health Education, Infectious Disease, and the Hazardous Materials Response and Emergency Management unit in a discussion of the wide scope of County health services with the Commissioner.
Freeholder Lagay stated, “We welcome Commissioner Elnahal’s visit and his willingness to meet with County Health units throughout the state. It is refreshing to see Trenton reaching out to those on the front lines to gather information and develop a dialogue. The Hunterdon County Health team is a model of collaboration, enthusiasm, and professionalism. Our public is well served.”
