Remember the Revolution!

Continental Arms Collectors Association’s Revolutionary War Unit celebrated America’s freedom at Fair Haven’s Independence Parade July 3. The crowd revelled in the repeated sounds of musket firings. The Unit marched to the cadence of drum and fife music reminding all why the Fourth of July is celebrated. They interpret a company from the 1st New York Regiment, Continental Army, 1782, that fought in the Revolutionary War.

The Salvation Army Red Kettle Committee is preparing for the annual campaign early this year.

This year’s goal is raise $106,000 in donations.  The agency fell short of last year’s goal and does not want a repeat this year.

The Red Kettle Campaign begins Friday, Nov. 14 and goes through Wednesday, Dec. 24 (excluding Sundays.)  All money donated stays within Oswego County and serves those in need of assistance.

Kettles will be placed at 30-plus locations throughout Oswego County and volunteers are desperately needed. We welcome any individual, family, business, organization, or church that can assist us by standing at a kettle location.

If you or your organization would like to give of your time, please leave a message on the Salvation Army Kettle Line at 207-3359, or e-mail:  oswegocountysalarmy@gmail.com
