GREENFIELD — In honor of the Veterans Day holiday, the Town of Greenfield is participating in Operation Green Light for Veterans, a nationwide effort created by the Association of Counties to support military veterans.
The Town will illuminate its Town Hall building and its Veterans Park with green lights for the week of Veterans Day and through Nov. 12.
“We thought it was too perfect for a town named Greenfield not to miss the chance to literally go green,” said Town Supervisor Kevin Veitch, in a statement. “We honor our hundreds of military veterans in our council room each month, when we pledge our allegiance to the United States flag alongside all the names of Greenfield veterans. Tying into this national effort was another way to draw attention to our respect for our hometown heroes.”
Greenfield honors veterans with a memorial in its Town Council room and also has a centrally located ¼ acre park located on Route 9N called Veterans Park that features a flag, a monument and a gazebo. In addition, the town recently held a Veterans Tournament at Brookhaven Golf Course and raised $5,778.60, which is being donated to the Saratoga Veterans Agency and the Albany VA Medical Center this week.
