Street dedication planned
Merchantville American Legion Post #68 along with Borough Officials would like to invite all residents and the public to the Corporal Grigg Way Street Dedication on May 4th at 9:30 a.m. at the corner of Alexander and West Chestnut Avenues. This historic and special event is being held to rename West Chestnut Avenue after a young man that was recognized by the WW1 Battle Commission. He is the namesake of Merchantville's American Legion Post and one of the most heroic young men that called our community home. Corporal Frederick Grigg enlisted at the age of 15 and served on two fronts with the US Army and New Jersey National Guard, he was killed in action during WW1 at the age of 18. 100 years later we will honor his legacy of service and sacrifice with a tribute in front of the very house where his family lived. We hope you can join us. Light refreshments will be served following the service.
