LOCK HAVEN — Part of the celebration for Clinton County’s 175th anniversary was a gathering of all the county’s veterans. Around 150 veterans gathered on the steps of the Clinton County Courthouse in Lock Haven on Wednesday.
“A lot of smiling faces. Still a lot of smiling,” Charles Klobe said.
The veterans served in different wars over different decades.The youngest vets are in their 20s, and some of these World War II veterans are in their 90s.
But they were all at the courthouse for the same reason: to pose together for a picture Ato celebrate Clinton County’s 175th anniversary.
“I think we’ll trade a little bit of experience here and there,” Klobe said.
The idea for the picture came from another photo: a picture of Clinton County Civil War veterans from 1898.
