WEST MILFORD - A group of veterans was treated to a free lunch at Camp Hope on Nov. 9.

The Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Camp Hope Commission invited approximately 30 veterans and their spouses to the camp on Union Valley road at 11 a.m. for the second annual Veterans Appreciation Day lunch.

Attending veterans enjoyed a holiday lunch consisting of turkey, stuffing, ham, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie.

They also enjoyed each other’s company and the guitar playing of Scott Giaquinto.
