North Salem holds Memorial Day ceremony
The North Salem community today honored Memorial Day at the WWII memorial on the site of the former Westchester Exceptional Children’s School in Purdys. Due to COVID, the usual parade and festivities were absent, replaced by a more subdued gathering focused on honoring those who lost their lives protecting our country and recognizing those who served.
The ceremony was led by Dr. John O’Hanlon, with remarks from Pastor Tim Wagner of the Croton Falls Community Church, Town Supervisor Warren Lucas and Deputy Town Supervisor Peter Kamenstein. Other community groups in attendance included the North Salem Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Croton Falls Fire Department, Boy Scouts members of Troop 4 Purdys, veterans, families and residents.
