Moving Wall Coming to Sussex County Sat, 08 Feb 2020 01:16:35 +0000

2020 Department of New Jersey Leadership School

The Sussex Elks Lode #2288 and the American Legion Riders of Sussex County is sponsoring “The Moving Wall” to visit Woodborne Park in Wantage, Sussex County, New Jersey in September of 2020. This grand undertaking will be the first time the half-size replica of the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial visits the county in its thirty-year history traveling the country.

As you can imagine, this is no small task and will require a small army of volunteers as well as financial donors. The Sussex County Elks Lodge and the American Legion Riders is reaching out to the community to help assist with the fundraising efforts. See the attached pdf for full details.
