On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month Marines of the Conrad F. Kania Detachment along with representatives of the Sikora American Legion Post, Vietnam Veterans Association Chapter #77 and the Boy Scouts of America gathered on Renaissance Bridge between the Tonawandas to honor our country's Veterans. It is also during this ceremony we honor the Gold Star Mother's with a wreath laying in the canal. Also not pictured were other members of the Detachment who performed the rifle salute prior to the playing of Taps. From here the members then went on to the Wheatfield American Legion Post #1451 to provide Colors and rifle detail for their flag retirement ceremony.

Remembering all those who have served and continue to serve..........THANK YOU.

Hello everyone, hope all are healthy and safe. It’s been a long several months; however, your family at Post 1451 have been quite busy bringing in some minor renovations that we hope you’ll enjoy. With Niagara county heading into Phase 3 next week, we are looking forward to opening our doors on the 19th
For your knowledge, when our doors open, for the health and safety of our patrons and staff, we will be following the New “Normal” guidelines (Social Distancing, reduced Occupancy, sanitization, and face coverings) established by the CDC and Governor of NY State.
1. We have reduced our occupancy in the Lounge, Back Hall and Pavilion to comply with the 6ft Social Distancing requirement. All tables, chairs and bar stools have been rearranged to meet this guidance
2. In the interest of safety to patrons and staff, we are asking everyone to please sign-in upon entry in the event that we may be contacted to support contact-tracing
3. We will be opening with reduced hours of operations for at least a month. Hours are as follows, and posted on this site. Mon and Wed 2:00 – 7:00 pm.; Fri 4:00 – 9:00 pm.; Sat 12:00 – 9 pm.
4. Face coverings are required to enter the Lounge, Back hall and Pavilion. Once seated, you can remove your covering.
5. All contact surfaces have been sanitized and will continue to be sanitized daily after each patron
6. We will be utilizing the Bar in the Back hall to accommodate all guests if the lounge begins to reach capacity limits.
7. Bingo is NOT open as of yet
We understand that this “normal” will look and feel very different for a while, lets all work together within the guidelines of these precautions to overcome this pandemic and keep ourselves and those around us safe. So, come on in, sit-back with your favorite beverage and a bar snack, and friendly conversations. We also have Pool, Darts, jukebox and Shuffleboard.
So, stay tuned for our Opening Announcement, and take a sneak peek at some changes... 😊
Sincerely,
Board of Directors

Next time you come across these Marines take the time to congratulate them.

If you are interested in assisting on a committee please seek out the Commandant or Sr. Vice Commandant and they will get you directed in the right direction. Currently we are looking for Marines to head up a couple of appointed positions. One being the Detachment armor where you would be responsible for the Detachments Parade rifles in their transportation to and from events as well as maintenance. There is also the need to fill the position of Historian where you would be responsible for the Detachments archives as well as recording current events.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation the April 2, 2020 Detachment meeting has been canceled. Will provide further information and updates as they become available.

BIO - hi my name is Glenn A. DiTillio ( President and Founder of Your New Life ). My wife is Rose M. DiTillio and she is my inspiration and she completes me in my journey. I work for NYS DOT as a Highway Maintenance Worker, a wrote an unpublished book titled “ Aspire to Inspire “, and I have served in the Marine Corps. Four years active duty, an a short time voluntary active reserve, been to roughly 17 countries and one tour in the Middle East “ Operation Dessert Thunder “. I decided to become a minister back in 2012 after I discovered that my aspirations were bigger than me. I personally have experienced the struggles during and after my transition back into civilian life. It is my life’s mission to inspire greatness in people even more so for those who have showed true leadership with the sacrifices they were willing to make for our country. It is my goal to help and encourage veterans to interact with their community and encourage the same with the community, I aspire to help veterans with their transition into civilian life with a multitude of programs that offer things that are more therapeutic in nature, things that including mental, emotional and spiritual support and strength. I believe with the right team we can inspire a nation. facebook.com/yournewlife123
