Hunterdon Officials In Virtual Ceremony On Veterans Day
Historic Courthouse Bell Tolls
In Honor Of Veterans
Fifty seven Hunterdon County Veterans who received the County’s recognition medal this year, including an Air Force fighter pilot originally from the County who spent nearly six years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, were honored by the County’s elected officials in a ceremony on Veterans Day, November 11th, livestreamed from the Historic Courthouse through Facebook and the County’s website, while the Courthouse bell tolled honoring those who have served the nation.

The County’s first ever virtual Veterans Medal ceremony was necessitated by postponement of the Hunterdon 4H Fair where the medal ceremony usually takes place. Instead, medals were distributed individually to Veterans on their doorstep, over the course of the fall, to protect their health.

Both Freeholder Board Director Shaun C. Van Doren and Deputy Director Sue Soloway participated in distributing medals to the Veterans’ homes and in the ceremony program.

Hunterdon County Library
Strategic Plan
Provides Blueprint For Growth
The Hunterdon County Library Commission has approved a Library Strategic Plan designed to provide the blueprint for the needed growth of library services to meet the needs of public, Freeholder Zach Rich, the liaison to the Library Commission, reported at a recent Freeholder meeting.

Rich reported, “There is a recognition that many people still rely on the library for book borrowing, which is its foundational mission. However, in my opinion, Libraries have to keep evolving in order to continue to have value for the public.”
