At last Thursday’s town council meeting, two groups who work in support of the United States Military were honored with signs of appreciation from the armed services.
Blue Star Banners were given to the VFW Mahwah Memorial Post 7124, and a flag flown overseas was presented to the Mahwah Marine Moms.
The honors were presented by Gunnery Sergeant Mario Monaco and other military representatives, and accepted by Gary Montroy of the VFW and Terry Wendrychowicz of the Mahwah Marine Moms.
The VFW announced it will again be donating $1,000 to the Mahwah Marine Moms.
In addition to Mahwah’s mayor and council, a representative from District 39 Senator Gerald Cardinale’s office, and Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan were on hand to thank the groups.
“I get to be county executive because of the sacrifices made by our military,” Donovan said.
“So, I am here to honor those who serve, and their families.”
