(Gloucester Township) – The Camden County Freeholder Board held its annual Memorial Day Ceremony on May 25th honoring the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. This year, the observance featured the grand opening of the new Veterans Affairs Office on Camden County College’s Blackwood Campus.
“This observance is usually held at the Camden County Veterans Cemetery at Harleigh, but renovations at that site present us with an opportunity to announce that the Camden County Veterans Affairs Office has been relocated from Lakeland to Camden County College,” said Freeholder Melinda Kane, liaison to the Camden County Veteran’s Affairs Office. “The Memorial Day observance will take place in the college’s Presidential Courtyard. After the ceremony, please join us for an open house in the new Veterans Affairs Office in the college’s Wolverton Center. A light lunch will be served.”
The Camden County Office of Veterans Affairs is located on the third floor of the Wolverton Center. The building, which also houses the library, is fully accessible with ramps and an elevator.
“To honor our heroes this Memorial Day weekend, join us in remembering that this holiday has been designated by this grateful nation to honor our veterans that have fought and died for our country,” Kane said.
