Goshen Community Care & Hospice is pleased to present the 2017 collectors ornament, the 22nd in a series of limited edition ornaments, giving tribute to the American Legion Lamson-Odonnell Post 46,Goshen/Cornwall, (established April 18, 1922), and features the Memorial Stage at the Goshen Center cemetery which supports the annual Memorial Day ceremony. Post 46 is named after two WWI veterans, Goshen resident Irving H. Lamson and Cornwall resident William J. O’Donnell.
The Post and Ladies Auxiliary ( organized in 1924) support and send local students to Boys’ and Girls” State where they learn about government practices and procedures. The Post sponsors a flag retirement ceremony on Flag Day, June 14 , at this site, they supply American flags to town buildings, and place an American flag each year on the graves of every veteran buried in all of the town’s cemeteries. The Post and Auxiliary honor and support our veterans, donate to local charitable organizations and youth activities. The Post and the Ladies Auxiliary work together at the Goshen Fair, selling hot dogs and hamburgers, with all profits used to help fund their donations.
