Citizens Advocating Memorial Preservation (CAMP) received additional and significant support from 2,000 Cattaraugus County American Legion members during a regular meeting of the county legislators in Little Valley on Wednesday, August 26, 2015.
The additional support came in the form of a letter addressed to the county legislative chairman that came from American Legion County Commander, George Filgrove. The letter was read into the county meeting minutes by American Legion representative, John Sampson, in front of all attending legislators, CAMP Chairman, Thomas Stetz and CAMP member, Gail Bellamy.
Mr. Sampson’s delivery was well-punctuated by his organization’s obvious passion for the preservation of the Cattaruagus County Memorial and Historical building located on Court Street across from the county complex in Little Valley, New York.
