It is a win-win.

“The New Jersey Veterans Network is grateful to our legislative leaders and the Governor for signing A2722/S3191 into law,” said Michael D. Boll, Director of New Jersey Veterans Network. “The enhanced licensure system will provide our nation’s heroes with the opportunity to utilize their world class medical training to continue to give back to their communities as nurses in the civilian workforce here at home.”

Touch a Truck Fundraiser for Our Veterans

6-18-22
Help us save Vets!

This year’s Touch a Truck did not disappoint anyone that entered the arena. There were so many displays available for the kids to enjoy and interact with and a number of added attractions to assure that any child attending had an exciting day ahead of them. Winds prevented the hot air balloon from being tethered, but kids had the opportunity to hop in a basket and activate the burner as they learned how heat makes the balloon rise. As always, the hay rides never stopped and filled to capacity each time it did its route – we could say the same about this year’s added attraction of a ride on the back of a deuce army transport truck! Food was plentiful, the music was good and the weather was more than comfortable throughout the day…

The New Jersey Veteran Network and The Rotary Club of Branchburg THANKS THANKS THANKS to Central Jersey Regional Airport and TriState Aviation and everyone that offered their equipment, vehicles, food, music, golf carts, ambulance (first aid service), the bus, the cooks, all the helpers setting up and breaking down tables and chairs and all the volunteers that monitored our displays and delivered food to be sure everyone was safe and having fun throughout the day – we could not have had the success this day delivered without everyone’s commitment to our fundraising dedicated to our veterans and active military.. Thank you for attending and we hope to see you again next year!
