Senator Patty Ritchie and Assemblyman Will Barclay, of the New York State Legislature, will be the featured speakers at the Scriba Bicentennial
Celebration on Saturday, June 16. Assemblyman Barclay will be the keynote speaker at the formal opening of the celebration, and Senator Ritchie will be the speaker at the “Salute to Veterans” portion of the program.
The event will take place at 9:30 a.m. in the big tent that will be pitched on Creamery Road near the Buildings and Grounds department.
There will be a display of the Congressional Medal of Honor awarded to Curtis F. Shoup for his heroic actions during World War II.
This display is possible through the cooperation of the Oswego County Historical Society Justin White, President. Photos of veterans of any war associated with Scriba are being sought by the Bicentennial Committee.
They should be copies of originals, with information about the individual, and not larger than five inches by seven inches.
These photos will be used to create a wall of honor as part of the historic displays that will be shown on both Saturday, June 16, and Sunday, June 17.
The Scriba Bicentennial Celebration will actually open on Friday, June 15, with a chicken barbecue at 5 p.m. followed by a barn dance.
Both events are to be held at the Scriba Volunteer Fire Department.
