They know a celebration when they sniff one

The People’s Parade returned to the Village of Kinderhook this July 4 after taking last year off due to the pandemic. Marching by the Village Square are the hounds of the Old Chatham Hunt Club. The parade is open to all people and their well-behaved canines. Marchers lined up on Rothermel Lane at 11 a.m. and paraded to the Village Square. There was a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, singing of the national anthem, a talk from Village Historian Ruth Piwonka and, as he has done since 1985, Mark Leinung read the Declaration of Independence in its entirety, “warts and all,” as he put it.
