Brewster, N.Y. —Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I - Patterson) today announced that the second annual Veterans’ Hall of Fame will be hosted at Henry H. Wells Middle School in Brewster on Saturday, March 2. at 6:00 p.m.. The hall of fame, which was originally scheduled for November 1st was moved due to Superstorm Sandy.
The Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created by Senator Ball, and designed to honor outstanding veterans throughout the 40th Senate District. Each veteran that will be honored will also be individually honored on a traveling wall that will tour local municipalities throughout the 40th district.
“I am excited to induct this 2nd class of heroes into our Veterans’ Hall of Fame! These men and women have been hand-picked by their communities because they chose a path of courage, honor, integrity and bravery; a path that helped shape America as we know it, protecting our way of life and liberty,” said Senator Greg Ball. “America is not a great country because of its politicians, it’s a great country because of our veterans.”
For more information about the event or to RSVP please contact Lindsay Goldstein at (845) 279-3773 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
