OXFORD – The American Legion’s top state level officials traveled to Chenango County last week to tour the New York State Veterans’ Home in Oxford as part of their annual visitation to Chenango County.
New York State’s American Legion Department Commander Edward Bertrand, American Legion Auxiliary Department President Susan Britton and Sons of the American Legion Department Commander Gary Denmon of the S.A.L. Detachment of New York were among the 30 representatives from the veterans organization in attendance.
They were welcomed with open arms at the NYS Vets’ Home, where they received a tour of the existing facility, learned about the new building currently under construction and enjoyed a luncheon in their honor.
NYS Veterans’ Home Administrator Sally Venugopalan said she looks forward to the visit each year.
“The American Legion family have been outstanding,” said Venugopalan. “They have been generous with their time, generous with their money and generous with volunteering for programs.”
