Hamilton to Join ‘Greenlight A Vet’ Campaign for Veterans Day

Hamilton is going “green” – but this week, it is for something other than environmental sustainability.

The Township will join in the ‘Greenlight A Vet’ campaign and light its Municipal Building, Health Division Building and Recreation Division Building green.

“We, as Americans, owe our freedom to those who have served us in the United States Armed Forces,” says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede.  “I’m asking residents to consider joining this effort to express our community’s gratitude for the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for us all.”

The project, which is funded by Walmart in association with veteran advocacy groups, calls on citizens across the country to display a green light on Veterans Day (November 11th) in gratitude for the sacrifices made by our nation’s veterans.

Hamilton will soon be home to two Walmart locations, including a Super Walmart that will help revitalize the town’s former Suburban Plaza retail center and become known as the Court at Hamilton.  Walmart has pledged to hire 250,000 veterans by the year 2020.

“This Veterans Day, I would ask all of our residents to thank a veteran for their service; and this effort is just one way our Municipal Government, as well as our community and nation can say ‘thank you’,” says Hamilton Township Council President Dennis Pone.
