Pat Curtin Reports:
The two Runs our Post hosted this summer went very well and demonstrated to the public our core value of community service. We apologize to any members that experienced inconvenience because of these runs. The repair work has started on the Post Home roof which was damaged by the November snow storm.
And, as every summer for the last number of years, we have to thank Janice and Ed Tyczka for all their hard work that keeps our outside grounds looking so well! Ed says the new mower is working out well and even got his picture in the Buffalo News!
Pat Curtin Reports:
We have about 10 rooms reserved for our ride to the 1000 Islands. We will be riding up on Saturday, August 22 taking the scenic route along Lake Ontario. We will spend Saturday night and Sunday night at Captain Thompsonís Resort in Alexandria Bay and then ride back on Monday. If you would like more information or would like to accompany us on a bike, trike or cage, call me at 675-2241.
