Dr. Maurice “Moe” Hickey, CCC president and keynote speaker said, “It’s fitting that Clinton Community College play host to the ceremony honoring our veterans, both current and past.

This Community College remembers, in Dr. John McCrae’s words that: "In Flanders Fields the poppies blow, Between the crosses, row on row."

 

Among special guests participating or attending the ceremony are Dr. John Ettling, President of Plattsburgh State University, Clinton County Legislator, Jacqueline Walker, Dr. Allen Walker, and Assemblyman Christopher Ortloff.
