    Please join us on Saturday, May 22 from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Celebrate Willingboro Rally for a day of inspiration, connection and community unity. On that day, we will be honoring many people who have made, and continue to make, a difference in the lives of people. (Click here to see some of our expected guests.) A partial list of our honorees is attached for your information.

    The rally will be held outdoors at the Grand Marketplace on Route 130 in Willingboro.

    If for some reason you are unable to be with us that day, please make a financial donation to the Celebrate Willingboro Committee (CWC), Inc. All proceeds are fully tax-deductible and will be used for the township's Celebration of Patriotism and Family on July 4 in Mill Creek Park. To make a donation, please visit our website at www.celebratewillingboro.org or mail it to Beneficial Bank, 611 Beverly-Rancocas Road, Willingboro, NJ 08046. Thank you so much.
