Anderson/Allegany State Park Historical Society
Veterans Recognition Week Contest
This is a contest for a weeklong stay at Allegany State Park (NY) for a chosen Disabled Veteran from the Gulf War to current wars.
The award is named after Dade Anderson, A Park Ranger for 36 years (deceased) and the idea conceived by his son, Lanny and Anne Marie Anderson, his wife (Anderson Trail’s namesake). This contest is being run and underwritten by the Allegany State Park Historical Society, The Anderson Family, Rick Feuz and others, and in cooperation with Allegany State Park.
Entries must be submitted within the specified dates (Feb 24, 2013- March 10,2013) on the Allegany State Park Historical Society Facebook page only. A photo and description of 100 words or less needs to be uploaded on the recent posts by others section of the ASPHS Face Book page, detailing the service and any message the Veteran would like to include. This is open to all disabled Veterans with families (male & female). The most amounts of “likes” the Veteran receives will have bearing on who receives the award, but the final decision will be granted by the ASP Historical Society Board of Directors.
Regardless of the outcome of this award, be it known that the membership of the ASP Historical Society wishes to thank all veterans, male and female, for your brave service to our great country. You have our utmost respect and admiration.
