Thanks from the historians

On behalf of the North East Historical Society and American Legion Post #178, many thanks to those who made our Sept. 21 event, “World War I, Impact on Millerton,” such a wonderful success.  We are very grateful for the informative article written in advance of the program by Carol Kneeland of The Millerton News, for the support of Robin Hood Radio, Dutchess County Historian Will Tatum, Bill Jeffway and Melody Moore from the Dutchess County Historical Society, as well as for our fellow board and Legion members who worked so hard.  To those who came from near and far to see the program, we deeply appreciate your interest in learning  about those members our community who served in World War I.

Thanks from the Tanners


The Tanner Family would like to thank all of our friends, family and community members for supporting us through the devastation of Jim’s cancer diagnosis. 

A special thank you to the Millerton firehouse and the members for hosting the benefit dinner. Also, thank you to The Fender Benders for providing the music and to everyone else who contributed to making it such an amazing event. 

From day one we have been overwhelmed with love and support from everyone. No matter how big or small your gesture, it has made this tragedy a little easier for our family. We are truly grateful and feel lucky to be part of such a gracious community. 

Jim & Molly

Tanner and Family
