Judge John Hall & Democrats Join Annual NAACP Scholarship Dinner

Judge John Hall and area Democrats joined in at the Queensbury Hotel to support the Annual NAACP Scholarship Dinner.  Despite the very hot weather (a rarity these rainy days!) a large crowd was in attendance at the hotel, making it a very successful night for the NAACP.  Wife Ann Hall accompanied John along with Warren County Democratic Chair Lynne Boecher and Dean Boecher, Glens Falls Democratic City Chair Roy Thomas and Hall campaign manager Dennis Tarantino.

Democrats Turn Our For Memorial Day In Glens Falls

It was a spectacular Spring day on Memorial Day 2013 as the annual Glens Falls-Queensbury Memorial Day Parade marched up Glen Street to Crandall Park for the joint community celebration.

Congressman Bill Owens,  Mayor Jack Diamond and Queensbury Councilman John Strough marched up to speak at the commemoration, as other elected officials, including a large delegation of Democrats marched with them.  

Judge John Hall and Warren County Democrats, including former Mayor Frank O'Keefe, Dennis Tarantino, County Chair Lynne Boecher and supervisor-at-large candidate Dean Boecher watched and saluted the parade from the porch of the Kenneally and Tarantino office on Glen Street.
