Village board remembers Bill Foster

by Rachel Hunter
The Village of Gouverneur Board of Trustees held a moment of silence before the Sept. 20 in memory of Bill Foster.
“He was outstanding citizen, a World War II Veteran, a village board member, a planning board member,” Gouverneur Mayor Ron McDougall said. “Interesting for those of us who went to the funeral, listening to the letter about the Battle of the Bulge and marching through France and Germany. Something to behold. So be thinking about Bill and his family please.”
The board also held a moment of silence as usual for the 10th Mountain Division Fort Drum soldiers who have been lost through the various campaigns since September 11, 2001.
