On Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 7:00 p.m., North Colonie will host its 15th annual Veterans Day Celebration at Shaker High School, a long standing tradition to honor those who have served. Army First Sgt. (Ret) Noonie Fortin will give this year’s featured presentation. Fortin successfully spearheaded the effort for the Presidential Medal of Freedom for Martha Raye, and wrote the first and only authorized biography of the woman whom veterans lovingly called Colonel Maggie: Memories Of Maggie: Martha Raye—A Legend Spanning Three Wars. Fortin travels the country spreading word about the many women who have proudly served our country.
