We thank Mr. Phil Tyburczy(Asst. Principal in charge of Athletics at Matawan High School), the High School's Athletic Leadership Council, Mr. Kevin Cotter and the High School Marching Band( they all were troopers under those hot uniforms). Thanks also to Mr. Peter George, our 2018 Grand Marshall. Thanks to Bayshore EMS and CERT and to Remsen from Straub Auto who donated the super cool electric car that we used to drive some of our Veterans. We loved having the Jersey Shore Girl Scouts sing at our Memorial Ceremony. Thank you to Father Tom Vala for your inspirational words at our ceremony. Thank you Matawan DPW for all your hard work. Shoutout to all our super awesome recreation volunteers! Finally, on behalf of the Recreation Department, we thank all of our Veterans for their service to our Country.
