Historical Society to Honor Robert McCaffrey with Volunteer Service Award at Thanksgiving Event
November 22 candlelight service and dinner celebrates a 50-year tradition
Sometimes tradition gives birth to tradition, and that's exactly what has happened over the last 50 years here in Philipstown. In November 1959, a group gathered under the auspices of the Putnam County Historical Society (itself 53 years old at the time) to give thanks for family, friends and good fortune.
