Union County Honors Westfield Couple Who Built A Wall of Love

Union County Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen and Vice Chairman Sergio Granados present a resolution to Valerie Latona and Dave Contract of Westfield commending them on their effort to remind the community that even during divisive times the nation continues to be bound by love; love of country, love of friends and neighbors and love of communities.

In February, for Valentine’s Day, the couple invited friends and neighbors to post hearts on their fence, each with its own message of love, hope and inspiration. There are now more than 300 hearts, each with its own positive message, posted on their fence, a symbol of unity in the community and the nation.

The Freeholder Board noted its support and appreciation to Valerie Latona and Dave Contract and requested to add their names to the fence, to demonstrate their support and commitment to this project.
