YORKTOWN, N.Y. – On Thursday, June, 8, Sue Orce and Scott Urgola, the directors of recreation and volunteers at Waterview Rehabilitation and Healthcare in Purdys, stopped by Yorktown American Legion Post No. 1009.
The American Legion was having its monthly meeting that night and Urgola addressed the 25 Legionnaires present to explain that Waterview Hills had done some fundraising in May during its National Nursing Home Month activities. The purpose of their fundraising was to allow them to make donations to local groups who they had working relationships with in recent years.
This year, they had selected the Yorktown post to receive a donation in thanks for its members coming to Waterview two of the past three Veterans Days to conduct ceremonies for the veterans in residence there.
Urgola and Orce announced to everyone at the meeting that they wanted to thank the American Legion for its help in the past and to present them with a donation check of $500 for the post to use in support of its programs. Post Commander John Giacomini accepted the donation on behalf of the post and said it would be put to excellent use.
