We Remember

Framed in a flag held by Juliet Cunnington, CCS Marching Band Director Kerri Hogle, in top photo, directs the National Anthem at annual ceremonies next to Cooperstown’s Doughboy Statue today at 11-11-11, the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, signifying the day and time of the Armistice that ended World War I.    In front of the statue, which commemorates local men who died in the Great War, are officers of the Cooperstown Vets’ Club, from left, Chaplain David Jackson, Commander John Famulare and Auxiliary President Mary Balcom.  Inset, Joan Clark, the Vets’ Club’s grand dame, sings “Oh say can you see…”  Next to her are Deb Green and her daughter, Meg Lindberg, and grandchildren Weston, 2, and Izzy, 8.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
