On May 30th, we celebrated June Conklin's 101st Birthday at the Post #1587 Legion. President Rickey Armstrong, Clerk Bethany Johnson, Commander Ronald Cook Jr. and June's daughter spoke during this special occasion of honoring our oldest enrolled Seneca member. Becky Bowen served as the Emcee for the day. Ja:goh June. Nya:wëh to all who attended the celebration luncheon.
The black bear is common around the Allegany Territory and recently one had been rummaging trash cans in the Steamburg community. It was humanely captured and released. The Seneca Nation Conservation Department wants to remind you that they're available to help remove unwanted wildlife.
