HAPPY July 2014!!!!!

        THOUGHT OF THE MONTH:   "" Smell the Flowers, Blow out the Candles!"

Mary's Minute:

Hello, I hope all is well with you! Like the thought of the month says, Smell the Flowers, Blow out the Candles! This thought is perfect for July because the flowers are growing and the 4th of July, our independence day is in this month. This thought of the month is not only good for that reason alone it is also good to just take a moment. Let me explain, I first heard this saying from one of my sisters and she was using it as a calming technique. You know breath in and smell the flowers and exhale out through your mouth and blow out the candles. This helps when your upset or just need to relax and believe me .... it works, I have used it often. But when she was telling me about this saying the thought popped in my head and I said to myself "Mary, how perfect for July for the newsletter thought of the month, with the flowers all around and with it being the 4th of July".....So use this thought any time and not only this month, please take the time to relax, take it easy and "Smell the Flowers, and Blow out the Candles" Happy Birthday America ! Thank you so much for being a part of this Center and enjoy the month.

Love and Laughter, Mary.

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.
