Gathering in the green beneath the memorial to Commodore Thomas McDonough and the famous building of the fleet and victory in the critical Battle of Plattsburgh, and on the bandstand dedicated to longtime VUHS music director Susan O’Daniel, the town paused to pay tribute to one of its own with the reading of a proclamation by Mayor Mike Daniels.   [ more ]
