Hillsborough Township Cancels Annual Salute to 

Veterans Breakfast, Memorial Day Parade and Commemoration Program Amid COVID-19 


Saturday, May 23, 2020 would have marked the 15th Annual Salute to Veterans Breakfast at the Peter J. Biondi Municipal Building in Hillsborough Township.  Instead the building will remain closed that day as a result of COVID-19.  


“It is unfortunate that we have to cancel the Memorial Day weekend program this year as a result of this pandemic,” announced Mayor Doug Tomson.


“Given the current status of stay  at home orders and social distancing requirements coupled with the planning necessary for the Annual Breakfast, Parade and Commemoration Program it became necessary to cancel the events normally held on Memorial Day weekend.  Once the restrictions are lifted, the Township will look into the possibility of holding a program at a later date,” added Mayor Tomson.


While municipal services are operational, despite the building being closed to the public, many programs and events are being canceled.  For up to date information on cancellations, please visit the Township website at www.hillsborough-nj.org.
