Over the weekend, a very special celebration took place in Claverack.

It was a celebration to show appreciation and to thank the many veterans, past and present, in Columbia County. The featured speaker for the event was Congressman Chris Gibson.

In the story that I saw on CBS 6 Albany, hundreds of people were the Claverack Town Park in honor of giving thanks to our veterans.
