ALBANY — James Randle of Williston Park Post 144 in Nassau County is the new president of the New York American Legion Historians Association. The New Hyde Park resident was elected during the Historians meeting Friday evening at the Mid-Winter Conference, being held Jan. 23-25 at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center.
ALBANY — Many of the legionnaires participating in the opening day of the Mid-Winter Conference were drawn to the cookie table set up by community health educator Julianna Tobak. She selected cookies to attract attention, she said, because, with “people going in and out of meetings, I wanted something to refuel the soul.”
