Veterans Day Message from Mayor Kelly Yaede
We all owe an eternal debt of
gratitude to our veterans; and this Veterans Day, Hamilton Township is taking a
small step to illustrate our community’s gratitude.
This week, we will light our
Hamilton Township Municipal Building, Health Division Building and our
Recreation Division Building the color green.
Following the ‘Greenlight A Vet’ campaign effort, funded by Walmart in
association with veteran advocacy groups, we want to show our veterans that
Hamilton Township appreciates their sacrifices, which have kept our community
and our nation free.
If your family is able to shine a
green light for our veterans this Veterans Day, I am certain that our veterans will
appreciate this gesture of gratitude.
But beyond this, I would encourage everyone to take a moment to thank a
veteran this Veterans Day and let them know that we all appreciate their
Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom
is never more than one generation away from extinction.” Thanks to our veterans, freedom has continued
to be preserved for our citizens all across our great nation. Through this simple gesture of lighting our
buildings green, we, as Hamiltonians, collectively express our gratitude.
Kelly A. Yaede
Mayor, Township of Hamilton
