Anthems of both nations were played.
The Dominican community has contributed greatly in many areas of our society to the social and economic fabric through out Jersey City, Hudson County and New Jersey State. The richness of ethnic traditions and cultural ancestry of the Dominican American community serves as an example to our democratic system of values.
