War Vets have snack in Hoboken today
Starting at 1:00pm today…
Cake Boss to raise blood sugar levels
The otherwise quite & peaceful Sunday we’re all enjoying today will become a bit busier later as some war veterans are making a pit stop in Hoboken as part of their trip to New York City.
Sponsored by the Wounded Warrior Project, several injured veterans of the Iraq War, as well as WWII POW’s and their families will pull up to the shores of Hoboken in a FDNY fireboat at around 1:00pm (Pier A Park).
Their visit to Hoboken will include a meet & greet at Carlo’s City Hall Bake Shop – home of the popular cable TV reality series “Cake Boss” (Which I’m guessing will be part of a future episode). After they have a few cupcakes and mingle with Buddy and staff, they’ll get to meet other hard-working civil servants when they have a home-cooked meal with the Hoboken Fire Department (who wants to bet it’s some kind of pasta?)
The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Their purpose is to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women, help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of severely injured service members.
Head downtown later if you want to check it out!
