Vendors Wanted for “Veterans Outreach Fair”


Mayor Barberio and his Council on Veterans Affairs are committed to assisting the brave servicemen and women who have protected our nation and defended the ideals we hold so dear.  It has come to their attention that many veterans are unaware of the benefits they are due.  Upon returning home, many of those veterans need help finding jobs, addressing their medical needs or finding housing.  Many older veterans need help obtaining various veteran, disabled person and senior citizen tax deductions.  The purpose of this fair is to provide veterans with emotional support and services that can be tailored to their needs.

The event will be held on Saturday, April 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Parsippany PAL Youth Building, 33 Baldwin Road.

Please contact Michele Sylvin at or (973) 263-4256 if you would like to participate and set up a booth.  Tables will be supplied gratis and there will be no charge to take part in this very beneficial and rewarding event.  We are planning to reach out to veterans throughout the entire state. Please forward this to anyone who might be interested. Confirmed participants thus far:
