On December 7. 2019 members from CAMP and two members from the Joseph P. Dwyer Program met to erect a sign on the lawn in front of the Cattaraugus County Memorial and Historical Building. The sign was made jointly by Allegany Citizen Printing of Allegany and Register Graphics of Randolph.

The work session was attended by CAMP members Gail Bellamy, Jim Taft, Bill Everts, Jim Ried, Treasurer Juanita Ried and President Tom Stetz. Dwyer Program coordinator Jessica Wilson and Dwyer Program member Tim Higgins assisted.

Support and help also came from Cattaraugus County Dwyer Program veterans, Dwyer Program coordinator Jessica Wilson, Village of Little Valley Mayor Jim Bowen, Trustee Todd Palmatier, Code Enforcement Officer Ron Bridenbaker, Zoning Inspector Ron Frentz, Moritz Excavation and Construction Owner Brent Moritz and employee Derrek Bates.

Contributions came from Todd Palmatier of Culpepper Wood Preservers with three pressure-treated posts; Brent Moritz drilled the holes for the signposts; Home Depot discounted $50 off the cost of vinyl post covers and caps; Jessica Wilson and Tim Higgins donated six bags of concrete.

Tom Stetz said, “This cooperative effort by these parties should prove beneficial to all involved.”
