[ARCHIVED] watch video-World War 1 plaque honoring veterans dedication ceremony

Watch our Veterans day ceremony and dedication of World War 1 plaque --a fantastic Eagle Scout project

You can watch the dedication of our World War I plaque at DeSanti Plaza and our veterans day ceremony in Hartsdale by clicking onto the link below.   

Ardsley Scout Thomas M. Sassalos III worked with our Veterans Committee and town officials restoring a World War I plaque that is now located at DeSanti Veterans Memorial  Plaza. The World War ! plaque was in bad shape, located in a remote location.  Thomas earned his Eagle Scout badge in recognition of this community service project.He restored the plaque, arranged to have the plaque moved to a very prominent location at our veterans memorial park and created  2 gardens near the park will now  become a "Memorial Perennial Peace garden".  The gardens will have a combination of perennials accented with native plants. Many of these plants will have significant meanings for our military  such as "Regard" and "Chivalry" for Daffodils etc. The stone was installed on October 15 and on October 22nd the Ardsley Scouts  planted the plants in the two gardens which will be blooming throughout the seasons.  

Watch the dedication ceremony and our Veterans day tributes  by clicking onto the following link:  We are grateful to Thomas, the students who helped Thomas with his project for never forgetting the sacrifices our veterans made to keep us free.
