Commander's Message

Commander Puckett reports:

    I hope everyone made it through the rough snowstorms that hit West Seneca. Our Post Home was closed for a couple of days, but everything is back to normal operations. Stop into the Post and see the changes that have been made recently. The kitchen is remodeled and new cameras have been installed in the parking lot. Enjoy a better and safer Post Home experience. Keep current on Post and Legion events by attending the General Meeting on Tuesday, February 13th. Remember to keep our military men and women who are serving around the world in your thoughts and prayers.

    Kitchen Update:

    The new commercial Kitchen Cabinets and new Counter Tops have been installed by Shell Fab of West Seneca. They look great and Thanks to Michelle Monaco for working with us to make this happen for the Post. The Monaco's and the staff of Shell Fab are very veteran friendly.

    The tiling & grouting will be done soon, All the prep work was done by Roy and Jim to prepare for the installation of the cabinets. They took out the old cabinets, counter top, and the dry wall had to be removed. They installed new dry wall and mudded the new board.

    Thanks to Steve, Jerry and Steve who help take out all the trash to the dumpster.

    Thank you to Mike Kandefer for removing the sink and disconnecting the dish washer and reconnecting them after the work was completed.

    We had a new camera system installed for inside and outside of the Post. The old camera system served us for years and we could not update the system with software.

    We had to close for a few days due to the snow but thanks to our plow guy, Jimmy, who opened up the lot for business. Thank You Jimmy!

    The next work detail will be on Tuesday, February 20th with 0830 for coffee, work at 0900 and end at noon. Hope to see you there.

    Support Your Post! God Bless America & Our Troops!
