  • On Saturday, May 4, the Wayne County Chapter of the American Red Cross held a brunch and information exchange event at the Palmyra VFW. More than sixty people attended the morning festivities.
    “The military brunch is an opportunity for the American Red Cross to say thank you to those in attendance for their service and sacrifice,” said James Love, Executive Director of the Wayne County Chapter of the American Red Cross. “It’s also a great way for us to help service members and their families to understand the assistance available to them in their communities.”
    In addition to the American Red Cross presenting information on the local emergency communication and loan programs for military families, representatives from Wayne County Action program, Blue Star Mothers, Wayne County Veterans Administration, NYSEG, Lifetime Care, Army Strong Community Center, and the Canandaigua VA Hospital presented and provided literature to the attendees.
    New York State Senator Michael Nozzolio was also present at the event. The Senator thanked the attending veterans and family members and provided information regarding the Sampson Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Seneca County. He also stressed the importance of recognizing and supporting our veterans and their families.
    The Red Cross plans to hold these special military family events twice a year in Wayne County. The next one is tentatively scheduled for late October.
    The American Red Cross would like to thank the following organizations and people for making this event a success: Palmyra VFW, Palmyra VFW Women’s Auxiliary, Senator Michael Nozzolio’s office, Wayne Cap, Wayne County Blue Star Mothers, Army Strong Community Center, Lifetime Care, the Canandaigua VA Hospital, NYSEG, Wayne County Veterans Affairs, Palmyra Supervisor Ken Miller, and the Red Cross Military Family Support Committee.
