The City of Watertown Parks and Recreation Department announces their next movie for their  Outdoor Family Movie Night Summer Series on Friday, August 2!

On Sunday, August 4th, Tony and Carol Monaco of the Fiddlesticks band, of Tonawanda, will play a free concert of old time fiddle music, from 2-5 p.m. at the North American Fiddlers’ Hall of Fame and Museum, 1121 Comins Rd., Osceola, NY.  

This concert is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.

Part of the War of 1812 bicentenial weekend celebration:

Help honor the Crown Forces killed at the Second Battle of Sackets Harbor on May 29, 1813, and buried on the battleground. A comprehensive list identifies 42 members of the 1st Royal Scots, 8th Foot, 100th Foot, 104th Foot, Royal Newfoundland Fencibles, Nova Scotia Fencibles, Glengarry Light Infantry Fencibles, Royal Navy, and Voltigeurs Canadiens.

 Overlooking Black River Bay at the eastern end of Lake Ontario, an engraved granite monument rests prominently where visitors may reflect and contemplate the battle and those who fought, died, and are buried on the battlegrounds in an unknown location. Completing the memorial setting is a large granite ledger engraved with the name of each of these men, with his rank and unit.

Funding for the monument comes from the Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site’s support group the Sackets Harbor Battlefield Alliance Inc., the Sackets Harbor Historical Society, Village of Sackets Harbor, and many businesses and individuals in the United States and Canada.

While this monument will commemorate these men, and the noble cause for which they died, we hope it will also provide visitors with a better understanding of the historical heritage shared between the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.
