THOUGHT OF THE YEAR : HAVE A KEEN 2017
Memories made here!  So here's to Good Health, Good Friends and Good Times at the West Seneca Senior Center!

HAPPY SEPTEMBER ~ THOUGHT OF THE MONTH: " See You In September "
Hello and Happy September !! I hope all is well with you and you had a great Summer ! The thought of the month is "See you in September " is perfect for this month. Every year since I can remember I start singing this song towards the end of August as I always think that is a fun way to end the summer month with a song. And it's a true fact that these newsletters will be printed before the end of August and I have the last week off on vacation so I really will be singing this song, except that , that is the only line that is true ! There is no " so long farewell " or " lose you to a summer love "because I just love this place and YOU ! This Center rocks and is the best and that is because we all are in this together, working together , and having fun together , making this the best Senior Center there is ! So, always remember to have a song in your heart and sing, hum or whistle a tune whenever you want because it will put a song on your face and in turn it will sure to make someone else happy too ! So get singing and in the mean time... SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER !!

~ 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.
