'Salute to Veterans’ concert features Lake George Community Band

Event pays tribute to military personnel

Members of the Lake George Community Band march through Pottersville during the North Warren Bicentennial Parade held Aug. 24. It was the largest local procession in many decades — and the accompanying Bicentennial Festival, held on the Old Pottersville Fairgrounds, was the largest of its kind since at least 1916.

— Also, the band’s marching division has participated in various community parades in the region, most recently as a featured group in the North Warren bicentennial celebration held this summer in Pottersville.

The next concert after this special Nov. 17 military tribute is a holiday concert set for Dec. 21, also in the Glens Falls High School auditorium.

Free transportation to and from the Nov. 17 concert is offered by a local veterans’ support group, which can be reached via email at: thankyouforyourservice, or by calling Dave Collins at 791-0188.

Tickets for the Nov. 17 concert are available in advance or at the door through the Wood Theater Box office at 874-0800 or: www.woodtheater.org.

County Clerk Pam Vogel said this week the band’s tribute to both the county’s history and area military personnel demonstrated the group’s admirable values.

“They are making an important contribution to our community and our veterans,” she said. “This is a very special event.”
