All programs following the Honor Guard ceremony will take place at the Fulton County Museum, 237 Kingsboro Ave. In the front yard of the Museum James Morrison, Gloversville City Historian has planned an event which will allow visitors to interact with representatives of the American War of Independence, the Civil War, World War 1 and World War 2.
