    Legion Visits Vets at Crouse Center During Legion College Weekend

    Representatives of The American Legion Department of New York got to visit veterans in a skilled nursing facility in Morrisville during the first weekend in June – at the same time American Legion Family College was held at SUNY Morrisville.

    “It was a great honor to share some time with the veterans at the Crouse Community Center,” Department Membership Chair Gary Schacher told Crouse Activities Director Kara Gemmell. “We hope that this get-together can become an annual event and continue for many years into the future.”

    The Legionnaires presented an American Flag to the facility. Activity Assistant Betsy Packard accepted on behalf of the staff.
