Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and Greece American Legion Post #468 Partner in Planting Flowers at Local Veteran Gravesites

For the past several years, the Town of Greece has been proud to partner with Greece American Legion Post #468 in purchasing flowers to be planted at the gravesites of our local veterans. The photo’s attached capture members of Greece American Legion Post #468 planting flowers at the cemetery at Our Mother of Sorrows Church, Falls Cemetery, and the Greece Legion Post.

“When I was a member of the New York State Assembly, I provided the funding for the monument that sits in tribute at the legion post” said Supervisor Reilich. “It is our honor to recognize our hometown heroes not only on Memorial Day but every day. The Town of Greece is honored to have so many brave men and women who have fought for our freedom and our great Nation. It is our privilege to pay tribute to all Greece residents, and all of our military men and women throughout our country, who so selflessly served our nation”.

For anyone interested in visiting the plots of the freshly planted flowers, please visit Our Mother of Sorrows Church cemetery, located at 5000 Mount Read Boulevard, Falls Cemetery, located at the intersection of West Ridge Road and Latona Road, or the Greece Legion Post, located at 344 Dorsey Road.
