Interlaken Goes Green for Veterans

Interlaken is hosting a Veterans Day ceremony Nov. 10 at 11 a.m. at borough hall.

In addition the Veterans Day Committee asks each residence to change one of their exterior lights to green.  Bulbs will be provided and assistance is available if needed.  The committee asks that you leave the light on from now until Nov. 30 as a way of thanking and honoring veterans.

This year marks the 100th anniversary since World War 1.  The committee hopes that all passing through Interlaken will know that residents appreciate veterans who enable and protect our freedom to live as we do.

Anyone with questions is asked to contact any one of the committee members. They are Fred Bruno, Liz Brown, Jim Berner, Rob Cancelleri, Carol Meyers, Laura Frank,  Jean Primavera and Kathy Collins, Joe Bauman and Margaret Buckley.

Green is the color of hope, renewal and well-being. “Greenlight” is also a term commonly used to activate forward movement. The simple action of changing one light to green is intended to spark a national conversation regarding the recognition of veterans, and “greenlight” them forward as valued members of our communities.”
