The Township of Manalapan and the Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee (VAAC) of Manalapan Township hosted the first annual Veterans Day Ceremony at 11 am on November 11, 2014. The ceremony took place at the Memorial Monument in the arboretum at Town Hall. The ceremony was open to everyone and all Township Veterans were invited to attend this ceremony. A breakfast was held to to honor all Township Veterans following the Town Hall Courtroom.

In State Tuition For NJ Vets

Military veterans from all states will qualify for in-state tuition at New Jersey’s public college and universities under a new state law. The “New Jersey Tuition Equality for America’s Military (NJTEAM) Act” (A3967) implements a federal law requiring in-state tuition rates for recent veterans and expands it to include veteran’s spouses and children. Regardless of where they live, they will be considered New Jersey residents for tuition purposes. The law takes effect immediately.

 

The order process for the Manalapan Walk of Honor pavers:

The pavers can be ordered either by paper form, (click here for 4×8) (click here for 8×8), through various boxes near town hall, or from the administration office in town hall.  Standard graphics can be found here.

The orders themselves are collected until a group of 5 orders are received, 5-4X8s or 5-8X8s.  That group order is sent to the manufacturer who then generates an invoice which is paid by the township on approval of the Township Committee.  Once paid the order is completed by the manufacturer in a time frame of 6 to 8 weeks. The pavers are then shipped to the township for placement in the Walk of Honor.  The placements are performed by the Veterans Committee members.

You will be notified prior to the order being sent.  The e-mail will show the details as to how the paver will look.  Please check for correctness, spelling, dates, units and logo selected, etc.  If you are satisfied, please reply with an OK or approved.  If not, please supply corrections.

When the pavers arrive, they are inspected and placed by the Manalapan Veterans Committee.  You will be informed of their arrival.

Any damaged or defective pavers will be returned to the manufacturer for replacement.  This process can take as long as the original order.

All communication will be by e-mail so a written record is available.
