Veterans Day is coming up November 11th. There will be ceremonies, parades, breakfasts at the VFW and other ways to honor our veterans and to thank them for their service.

The town of East Greenbush is taking a more hand-on approach to helping local veterans. Town officials along with East Greenbush employees, police and the East Greenbush Teachers Association have teamed up to help veterans in need of yard work. Volunteers will be available for raking leaves and small yard clean up from 10am until 2 pm on November 11th.

What a great way to help our veterans in a tangible way and give back to those who have given so much.

If you are a veteran and you'd like to sign up your yard call the Town of East Greenbush Community and Recreation Department at 518-1774194
