Submit Photos of Your Hero or Healer for Veterans Day Salute
County College of Morris and its Student and Veteran Support Organization will be hosting a “Heroes and Healers” event as a Veterans’ Day tribute to honor the bravery and sacrifice of veterans, active military personnel, first responders and healthcare workers.
The event will feature a drive-through Hill of Honor display consisting of photos of everyday heroes and healers. Event organizers are asking people to submit photos of those they would like to honor by including them in the outdoor exhibit. Photos can be submitted at https://bookstore.ccm.edu/campus-life-events/. A $20 donation is requested. Proceeds will be donated to the Nourish NJ foodbank in Morristown. The donation can be made online when submitting a photo.
The Hill of Honor will open to the public on Saturday, November 7, at 10 a.m.
A special program will follow at 11 a.m., and will include remarks from Morris County Freeholder John Krickus, USMC.
A candlelight ceremony also will take place at sundown that day, starting at 4:45 p.m. A candlelight ceremony will take place again on Veterans Day November 11, starting at 4:45 p.m. A video of the event, including a slideshow of the photos, will be released on Veterans Day on YouTube. The Hill of Honor will remain open to the public until November 12.
Also sponsoring “Heroes and Healers” are the CCM Departments of Campus Life, Student and Veterans Services, and Special Events, along with the CCM Foundation.
