I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. John Hurff this weekend . Mr. Hurff is a working farmer -(you'll notice it when you shake hands)- and has succeeded his Dad-the late Myron Hurff as President of William Shober & Sons, Inc. (Orchards and Farm Market) 1125 Monroeville Rd., Monroeville, NJ 08343.
I asked permission to take pictures, after seeing his "Thank You Veterans" display along the country roadside.
I learned from Mr. Hurff he hosts a special Veterans' Day celebration, in which any Veteran who shows up receives a "thank-you" gift of apples and cider.
Mr. Hurff thanked me for my (humble) service. I'd like to thank him for his consistent support.
I've noticed a quiet patriotism here - due,in no small part to the large numbers of South Jersey residents who have volunteered to serve their country - and the substantial number of those who sacrificed all to do so.
