Veterans' graves to be brightened for holidays


Order forms are also available at the Clinton County Veterans' Service Agency in Suite 106 of the Clinton County Government Center on Margaret Street in Plattsburgh. Wreaths are $15 each.

Reach Kathy Baumgarten at 563-9479 for more information. Find details on the local effort on Facebook:

Before the noon laying of the wreaths on Dec. 15, the group hopes to bestow the same honor on at the graves of two other Plattsburgh Medal of Honor winners, Francis B. Hall in Riverside Cemetery and John H. Moffitt in Mt. Carmel Cemetery.

A reception with light refreshments will follow the event at the Battle of Plattsburgh Museum. Dr. Timothy Abel and Keith Herkalo will present a lecture on Pike's Cantonment at that time.

The wreaths will remain until after New Year's Day, when volunteers will collect them for disposal.
