HAPPY JANUARY ~ THOUGHT OF THE MONTH: " We are never really happy until we try to brighten the lives of others "

Hello , I hope all is well with you! Like the thought of the month says, "We are never really happy until we try to brighten the lives of others ." This thought of the month is not only perfect for January but it is something to live by for the entire year! We all want to be happy and we always feel a bit better when we make someone else's day brighter. So try to do something for someone else every day , even if it is just as simple as a smile , to say hello, hold the door or doing a chore or a donation for someone in need. The choice of what you do is up to you but just take a moment out of your day to think of someone else. What a great way to start the New Year off, so go on and do something to brighten the day of someone else, you will be happy that you did, I promise! Thank you everyone for doing what you do and making my day brighter each and every day
Love and Laughter, Mary

WORLD WAR II VETERANS:

Years ago to help maintain the memory and sacrifices of so many West Seneca Veterans the town historian at that time, Frank J. Lankes created a WAR SERVICE RECORD containing the name, address and branch of service of each individual entering military service.  An effort was made to track the bases of operations, training and citations for each of our service personnel.  These records were maintained, but over a period of time, these WAR SERVICE RESORDS were placed in storage and for the most part, largely forgotten.  UNTIL NOW!  To help maintain the memory and sacrifices of so many West Seneca residents, the information has been recreated from the original WAR SERVICE RECORD.  In addition to the notes compiled by the Town Historian, residents are urged to contribute and additional information on any World War II veteran they may know or have known.  The goal is to have a complete military record for each World War II veteran whose unique and crucial contribution helped end the worst conflict the world has ever experienced.

 

If you have additional military service information that you would like to share on a veteran, please send an email or call Jim Manley so these service records can be updated.  With your help, our World War II veterans will never be forgotten.
