Parker recognized close to four dozen men and women who had served our country at special Veteran’s Day ceremonies held at Parker at River Road and Parker at Landing Lane. Veterans from Parker at Stonegate Assisted Living and Parker Adult Day Center joined the ceremonies, as all were honored with a special plaque of appreciation and an American flag.
Each celebration began with a color guard march by the Piscataway Elks Lodge and a short speech on the importance of appreciating those who have fought for our freedoms.
The Piscataway Elks Lodge were enlisted by Joe Mazurek, Chef de Cuisine at Parker at Stonegate and a former Exalted Ruler of Elks Lodge #2262 in Hamilton.
“It’s so important to honor those who have given us what we have today,” said Mazurek. “There’s no greater hero than someone who steps and puts their life in front of yours in protection.”
Parker is proud to raise the visibility and awareness of our residents and participants who have dedicated their lives to serving our country. After each ceremony dining services offered refreshments for all to enjoy.
