Calcutta Veteran's Administration Picnic

Last Friday, August 12, the Calcutta VA put on their annual picnic in support of the veterans. It was a good old fashion summer picnic for all area veterans whether they are VA patients or not.

The picnic is organized with donations from a lot of area businesses and veteran's organizations such as the American Legions & VFW Posts around the tri-state. Key organizer of the annual event, Mary Ann Novak, was unable to attend due to a family emergency but she did a whale of a job getting things ready.

It was a first for us but we got pictures of as many Wellsville people that we could find. The veterans and their families was entertained by the Bluegrass music band Flat Iron. Not a one of them was from Kentucky but Wellsville area resident Rich Lewis said his wife is an native of the Bluegrass state.

Looks like a good time was had by all...
