Patrick Skelly, Veteran Service Officer with Wayne County Veterans has forwarded the following message to area veterans because he has received calls from two Wayne county Veterans about possible scams.  First, the call was from some one claiming to be a VA Employee and was requesting to update a vet’s records by getting a copy of the dd214 and financial statement.  DON’T GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION ON THE PHONE.  Second, he received a call from some one claiming to be a representative of the Vet’s NetWork asking for information.  This veteran has given his information to Kern’s at the Patriot Guard -DON’T GIVE DONATIONS TO UNKNOWN ENTITIES.

Thank you to Patrick Skelly and Jerry Lamb for this information.

May 8th – Mother’s Day Chicken BBQ To Start Summer Season

The annual Mother’s Day Chicken BBQ (May 8th this year) will be the start of another summer season of activities at Palmyra’s James R. Hickey Post #120 of the American Legion.  This annual event is hosted by the Post with Double D Catering providing all the delicious food.  We sell the tickets, they cook the chicken and take care of the rest.   Get your tickets for your chicken dinners early so you are not left hungry on that Sunday afternoon.  Again, it will be simple…drive through only.  Call the Post at (315) 597-2412 after 1:00 daily starting April 22nd and pre-order your tickets.  Tickets will be available on Mother’s Day as well but if you’re late, they may be sold out.  Chicken will be available starting @noon until sold out (which doesn’t take long because of the delicious aroma that fills the neighborhood).
