He also provided key support to John Hall and other national and state candidates. Delaney worked endlessly, tirelessly and effectively on behalf of his community, contributing his time and expertise not only to progressive candidates and causes but also to several community organizations.

He was also a devoted husband to Carol, a father, grandfather and a wonderful and loyal friend.

The dedication will take place at the at Beaver Dam Park, 135 Beaver Dam Rd Katonah, NY on Tuesday, June 12 at 7 p.m. There is a rain date of Thurs. June 14.

I realize that the "5:30 AM" refers to the time of posting, but it reads up there "The ceremony will take place at Canine Commons. 5:30 am" Further down it mentions that the time is 7PM, but this can be confusing.
