Honoring veterans of the Revolutionary War

MALONE — The Adirondack Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will hold a commemorative ceremony on Saturday, June 29 at 10:30 a.m. at the Franklin County Courthouse, back entrance. This event is in conjunction with the 250th Anniversary of America.

Culminating more than a year of research, the ceremony will dedicate a granite monument recognizing the known Revolutionary War veterans who are buried in Franklin County, including the towns where their remains are located. The public is welcome to attend.

Guest speakers will be Assemblyman Billy Jones and Franklin County Legislator and Malone Village Mayor Andrea Dumas.

The Daughters of the American Revolution is an organization that welcomes any woman 18-years of age or older who can prove, by accepted documentation, her lineage to an ancestor, either male or female, who aided the cause of American independence through military, civil or patriotic service.

The Adirondack Chapter was organized in 1901 and concentrates on patriotic work, historic preservation and education. Call 518-358-9584 for more information.
