HAPPY OCTOBER !!!!!

        THOUGHT OF THE MONTH:   ""Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn "
"                 

Mary's Minute:

Hello, I hope all is well with you! Like the thought of the month says, "Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn " This is a great thought for the month of October. The season is changing, the leaves are changing and we are changing because we are getting older ! Fall is such a beautiful time of the year, It's not so hot outside and there are gorgeous colors all around. Just like we always hear in the summer time to sit back and smell the roses, so, with that being said , we must always remember to sit still and watch the leaves turn! Thank you so much and enjoy the month !

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.
