The stirring event will be held at the Volney Town Hall County Route 3, Volney Center, on April 23 at 2 p.m.

The book “The Heart of Fulton at Home and Abroad: World War II and The Korean War” is the story of the boys that went to war.

Farfaglia had the privilege of working with several Fultonians to collect stories from those who served our country during those wars and also from their spouses and children.

He will share some stories through their words and a slideshow put together to honor these local heroes
