    On the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1918 “the war to end all wars” had reached an armistice.   President Wilson would declare Armistice Day in 1919.  This day is meant to commemorate the heroism for those who have served and died protecting freedom and justice throughout the world.   Today, Veteran’s Day celebrations continue to honor American veterans that have and continue to serve, protect, and sacrifice for the United States of America. During this upcoming long weekend, remember to say "thank you" to members of the Armed Services for protecting our rights at home and abroad. 

    At 11 am on November 11, 2018, exactly one hundred years after the end of fighting on the Western Front in World War I, bells across the United States will ring together as part of the special commemoration "Bells of Peace." The Historical Society of Rockland County is participating in "Bells of Peace" to honor the 116,516 American men and women who died in World War I.

  • Friday 11/2/18 - Day 3

    Posted by Patricia Rooney on 11/2/2018

    Last weekend there was a terrible tragedy in Pittsburgh where 11 people lost their lives in their synagogue. Unfortunately, last week’s shooting was the latest event where hate motivated an individual to victimize brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters and fellow Americans. Rather than sit back and accept that hate exists, I ask all of you to remember our theme this year to work hard and be kind and take a moment today and every day to find a way to spread kindness instead of hate. Let’s make a difference. Now, let us share a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives last week and all of those individuals who have lost their lives senselessly because of hate.
