Veteran’s Day is a time to honor those who have fought for our freedom, a time to revere the memory of what they have done.

BLOOMINGBURG, NY — Sunday, November 11, 9 a.m. Veterans Day Ceremony at VFW Post 4947. 9:30 a.m. Veterans Day Ceremony at the Bloomingburg Firehouse.

On Saturday, September 1, 2018, two veterans of the Civil War will be honored after a century and a half.
