Why We Honor Our Veterans

As women, we are especially grateful to be able to gather at Heaertworks and speak freely. One of our core philosophies at Heartworks is that none of us would be able to enjoy what we do in our lives without the sacrifices made by our military.

We realize that there are so many places in the world where men and women cannot even imagine being able to gather publicly in safety and speak freely. At every monthly meeting, we light candles in honor of our Veterans. The first candle lit is always for our active military that ensures that we can continue to do what we do.

What We Do for Our Local Veterans

Every day during the weeks of Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day, we hold flag raising and lowering ceremonies and make breakfast and dinner for the men of VFW Post #7858 at the Bernardsville Post Office. We encourage everyone in the community to attend these short and meaningful ceremonies. Heartworkers sign up for these opportunities:

  • Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day
  • Mums delivered each fall
  • Desserts brought to their monthly meetings
