“We wouldn’t be what we are in this country if it wasn’t for our veterans and we have to thank them every single day for what they have done,” Space said at the luncheon. “You guys are the best.”
Separately, Chapter 1002 members joined Sussex County Democrats for a traditional Irish breakfast at The Irish Cottage in advance of the parade.
