Salem County Freeholders to Honor Military Enlisteeshttp://www.salemcountynj.gov/salem-county-freeholders-to-honor-military-enlistees/ http://www.salemcountynj.gov/salem-county-freeholders-to-honor-military-enlistees/#comments Thu, 21 May 2015 21:35:34 +0000 http://www.salemcountynj.gov/?p=7276 memorial-day2

The Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders will be hosting the “2015 Salem County Salutes our Armed Forces Enlistees.” The event will be held on June 3, 2015 at 6:00 pm in the Salem County Olde Courthouse, 104 Market Street, Salem. The purpose of the event is to honor county residents who are enlisting in all branches of the United States Military.

“Our county residents who have made the commitment to defend the United States of America are most deserving of our gratitude,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Ben Laury. “It is truly our honor to host this event and show these exceptional men and women that Salem County appreciates them.”

The keynote speaker will be Lieutenant Colonel George N. May. Enlisting in the United States Army Reserves in 1990, Lieutenant Colonel May’s career has taken him around the globe with assignments in Korea, Afghanistan, and Kuwait. Musical selections will be performed by the Salem American Legion Band.

Freeholder Director Julie Acton said of the event, “As the school year comes to a close, we recognize this is the time that many young men and women will choose to enter the military. It is proper and fitting to thank these individuals and let them know that their community is proud of them.”

The county is seeking information on all recent enlistees and asks anyone who knows of an enlistee to provide information to Brenda Banks. She may be reached at (856) 935-7510, Extension 8203 or brenda.banks@salemcountynj.gov. Enlistees, along with their family and friends and the general public are encouraged to attend the event.

Salem County Freeholders approve Scenic Byway Sign Agreementhttp://www.salemcountynj.gov/salem-county-freeholders-approve-scenic-byway-sign-agreement/ http://www.salemcountynj.gov/salem-county-freeholders-approve-scenic-byway-sign-agreement/#comments Mon, 27 Apr 2015 20:26:01 +0000 http://www.salemcountynj.gov/?p=7211 At the April 15, 2015 Salem County Board of Chosen Freeholders meeting, an agreement was approved for the receipt and installation of signs identifying the Bayshore Heritage Scenic Byway throughout Salem County.  The signs, along with installation, will be provided to the county at no cost by the New Jersey Department of Transportation through the Bureau of Landscape.
 
Originally dedicated in 2009, the Bayshore Heritage Byway was designed to draw attention to the historic and natural qualities of the western shore of New Jersey.  Passing through 19 municipalities in three counties, the scenic byway explores the cultural, natural and historic assets along the Delaware River and Bay.  Freeholder Director Julie Acton explained, “The Bayshore Heritage Byway is a 122 mile route throughout Salem, Cumberland, and Cape May Counties.  The agreement to provide signage along the route will direct tourists throughout Salem County and include spurs off of the route to destinations such as Fort Mott.”  
 
In Salem County, the byway passes through Mannington, Salem, Elsinboro, and Lower Alloways Creek.  Deputy Director Ben Laury said of the route, “This route directs travelers through beautiful Salem County.  Travelers get to explore the history, scenic countryside and waterfront of Salem County.”
 
For a map of the entire Bayshore Heritage Scenic Byway, please visit http://www.state.nj.us/transportation/community/scenic/pdf/bayshore.pdf
