Memorial Service and Taps Across America

29 May @ 2:15 pm - 3:15 pm

The service will start at 2:15pm  at the Danby Monument in front of Danby Town Hall. The Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Sydney Camp #41 will hold a memorial service followed by the sounding of Taps at 3 p.m. in conjunction with Taps Across America. 

BACKGROUND: The National Moment of Remembrance is an annual event that asks Americans, wherever they are at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, to pause for a duration of one minute to remember those who have died in military service to the United States. 

The monument has always been a center point in Danby. The residents before us held picnics and dances and bid on picnic baskets to raise the money to build it. Some of these people could have been members of your family.

Over the past 36 years Sydney Camp #41 has redone six GAR monuments and installed one new one in Dewitt park. We have also redone the World War monument and others in Dewitt Park.

The Town of Danby sits on the traditional & ancestral land of the Gayogoho:no’ (Cayuga Nation), one of the five nations to first form the Haudenosaunee. Indigenous peoples were largely forced out of Upstate New York by the Sullivan-Clinton Expedition in 1779. The land that would become the Town of Danby was a part of the Watkins and Flint Purchase, a 336,380 acre patent granted by New York State to numerous eastern investors in 1794.
