Constitution and Citizenship Day

Sept. 17 was Constitution and Citizenship Day. Willsboro resident Kathy Hohn celebrated this year by becoming a naturalized citizen of the United States on that day. On Sept. 19, her church, WUCC, the "Old Stone Congregational Church" feted her at their coffee hour. Kathy was surprised with a large cake displaying the US Flag inscribed with "Congratulations New Citizen Kathy." Ted Hohn, Kathy's husband, wore a British General's Revolutionary War uniform symbolizing Kathy's native Canada and Peter Rowley, Sons of the American Revolution, wore the uniform of his NY State Patriot Capt. Caleb Haight and welcomed Kathy as a newly naturalized citizen. Peter read the oath of citizenship which Kathy had taken at her naturalization ceremony so everyone present could share in Kathy's willing commitment and enthusiasm to her new country.
