The event will feature a drive-through “Hill of Honor” display consisting of photos of everyday people, from veterans and active serice members to first responders and healthcare workers. Event organizers are asking people to submit photos of those who they would like to honor by including them in the outdoor exhibit.

A $20 donation is requested.  Proceeds will be donated to the nourish.NJ  foodbank in Morristown, formerly known as the Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center. The donation can be made online when submitting a photo.

The “Hill of Honor” will open to the public on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 10 a.m. A special program will follow at 11 a.m. Additionally, a candlelight ceremony  will take place at sundown that day, starting at 4:45 p.m.

Another candlelight ceremony will be held on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, starting at 4:45 p.m. 

Also sponsoring “Heroes and Healers” are the CCM Departments of Campus Life, Student and Veterans Services, and Special Events, along with the CCM Foundation.
