Town Clock To Be Erected

Granville New York, March 25, 1943

Granville is about to realize a new town clock to replace the one lost in the fire last October (Actually, Nov. 30 – editor). At a meeting of a committee of the American Legion held Wednesday evening, plans were made and the order authorized, for purchase of an electric, four way town clock.

Not only have the directors of the Washington County national Bank given their permission to install the clock on the corner of the bank building but they also offered the American Legion $1,000 with which to start the drive for funds in this community. All interested people will be given an opportunity to share in this project in the next two weeks.

The clock is to bear an appropriate inscription as a memorial to the boys who are now fighting America’s battles in defense of democracy, the particular inscription, or slogan, to be decided on later.

A special meeting of the members of the Granville post of the American Legion has been called for Sunday afternoon at which time the plan will be announced and the drive started at once.

More details will be published in next week’s issue of the Sentinel.
