A historic, iconic building in Gilbertsville, NY, the Major's Inn is maintained from generous donations as a non-profit entity.  In order to maintain the upkeep of the beautiful building that plays host to community events, weddings and other parties, the Major's Inn will be the location for a special screening of an award-winning documentary from local filmmaker Joseph Stillman called "Citizen Clark… A Life of Principle".  The film narrated by Martin Sheen, tells the story of former U.S. Attorney General and Human Rights activist Ramsey Clark and is a chronological look at Clark’s national and international commitment to the causes of peace, justice and human rights issues.
