WWII Clock Rededication now on DVD

I t was a milestone 67 years in the making and now the memory of the rededication of the World War II Veterans Memorial Clock can be purchased for viewing at home. More than 1,000 people gathered to acknowledge the men who served from the Greatest Generation as well as the man who restored the Memorial Clock to its former glory, resident John Freed.

A commemorative DVD of the observances from Sept. 18, 2010, including the ceremony, parade and video tribute, was recently completed by Granville High School Technology Coordinator Dan Nelson and his helpers.

Anyone wishing to purchase a DVD can contact Village Clerk Treasurer Rick Roberts during office hours Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or requests can be sent with payment through the mail.

The DVD is $15 to pick up or $20 through the mail, where the discs are sent in a priority envelope and should arrive in most places with two to three days. 

Mailed request should be sent to: Village of Granville, Attn.: Clock DVD, P.O. Box 208,

Granville, N.Y. 12832. 

Checks should be made out to the Village of Granville.

“I think it’s a nice keepsake whether you were there or weren’t able to be there. I think the tribute to those who served was nicely done and if you weren’t able to get there it’s nice to see what actually happened there that day. I think it’s a nice gift for any veteran or anyone who has a special feeling in their heart for Granville,” Roberts said. 

All funds from the sale of the commemorative DVDs go into the clock fund account held at TD Bank and help support future maintenance of the clock. 

Requests for DVDs can be sent to the office via e-mail by sending a request to granville@roadrunner.com.

Roberts said any e-mailed requests would be mailed after payment was received.
