Community remembers veterans’ sacrifices

The Gloversville Parade Committee, Ambrose Anderson, Harold Gordon, Kenny Rockwell, Robert Perrella, Deb Finkle, Kevin Jones, Linda Bullock, Linda Fisher, Karen Dwyer Smith, Todd Mercer, Joni Wilson, Mike Perrella and Brian Perrella, would like to thank all the participants in the Gloversville Veterans Day parade and ceremony and all the spectators who were at both events.

Our community has never forgotten all the sacrifices our men and women have made and are still making here and overseas, not only protecting our freedom, but helping others achieve theirs. We would like to thank the American Legion, which was our grand marshal. Thank you for serving America with honor, courage and commitment.

We want to thank all the individuals and groups that help us with the parade and services each year, as well as The Leader-Herald, WENT, WFNY and all those who spoke at the ceremony.

Thanks also to the city departments that help us in numerous ways to make our parade and services a success, including those in the community who helped us financially. Anyone still wishing to contribute may do so by making donations to the Gloversville Parade Committee, mailed to Robert Perrella, 23 Fay St., Gloversville, or Linda Bullock, 28 Fifth Ave., Gloversville.
