HAPPY JULY ~ THOUGHT OF THE MONTH: " Smell the flowers - Blow out the Candles "

Hello and Happy July ! I hope all is well you and happy Summer ! The thought of the month is Smell the Flowers - Blow out the Candles is perfect for the month of July. In fact I use it every year because it's true !First of all you have the beautiful flowers of summer so always remember to take time to stop and smell them and July 4th is the birth of our great Nation so you have to remember to blow out the candles of the Country 's birthday Cake ! But ....if you add this all together this is also a good way to live your life, especially when you are sad, angry, anxious or just our to sorts, believe me it happen at one time or another to all of us , but remember this is what you have to do...take a moment for your self and slowly breath in ( smell the flowers ) and breath out ( blow out the candles ) and you may have to do this a few times but it works ! So always remember when life get to you any time of the year but especially this month of July, remember to "Smell the Flowers - Blow out the Candles " You all are the best and keep calm and enjoy your Day !

Love and Laughter, Mary

Annoying Calls "DO NOT CALL LIST " NUMBER 1-800-382-1222


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.

CERT Special Needs Registry Program:   Information at the Senior Center. The registry will enable Erie County to identify residents in need of special assistance, plan for resources and equipment to meet the identified needs and respond in an appropriate manner.  Towns will have knowledge of special needs residents and be able to repond more effectively to disasters or major incidents.
