Committee to honor veterans Saturday

The 45th annual Veterans Day ceremony sponsored by the West Seneca Veterans Committee will be held Saturday, Nov. 11.

Normally held at the Walkway of Freedom, the location for this year’s ceremony has been changed to Post 735 due to the ongoing construction of the West Seneca Community Center and Library.

The ceremony will start promptly at 11 a.m. when member units of the West Seneca Veterans Committee, American Legion Post 735, Marine Corps League Detachment 239, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8113, Navy Seabee Veterans of America Island X-5, AMVETS Post 8113, Harvey D. Morin VFW Post 2940 and 82nd Airborne and honored guests assemble at Post 735.

This year’s guest speaker will be Chief Master Sgt. Edward Stefik, 107th Attack Wing command chief, Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.

The Walkway of Freedom was established in June 2011 to honor veterans who have served the United States by giving their time and, some ultimately, their lives in military service to the country.

The walkway is located in the Veterans Memorial Park between the West Seneca Town Hall, 1250 Union Road, and the West Seneca Library, 1300 Union Road.

The public is urged to attend the Veterans Day ceremony and show support for veterans. Light refreshments will follow at American Legion Post 735, located across the street at 35 Legion Parkway.
