July 4, 2016 Picnic Lunch for Vets at Bath VA Event Recap


Thirty one members, family and friends of the Allegany District Masons and Eastern Star celebrated the 4th of July holiday by providing a picnic lunch to the residents of the Bath VA Medical Center. Over 140 veterans plus a number of staff were served grilled hot dogs, sausage and hamburgers, potato salad, baked beans, pickles and homemade cookies at the outdoor pavilion. The group of volunteers expressed that it was a great day to honor our veterans and a great way to say, “thank you” for their service to our country.


One member of the group, Donald Beaver from Cuba, NY, stated that he had been helping out at the annual 4th of July picnic at the Bath VA for over 20 years. He related that over the years, there have been many organizations who have helped to support this outing, including the Masons, Eastern Star, VFW, area Legions, as well as a few companies and individuals. Some years they served barbecued chicken; some years they provided live music; and some years they had special flag ceremonies. Each and every year the smiles and appreciation shown by the veterans make it all worthwhile.
