Dunkirk Joint Veterans Council
Founded in 1966, this group of legions, veterans of foreign wars posts in the Dunkirk-Fredonia area, heads up the Memorial Day parade in Dunkirk as well as services for Veterans Day. In addition, members of this group attend funeral services to pay tributes to military veterans who have passed. The first commander of the group was Alvin Kaymore. He was succeeded by Hector Bauza and the current Commander Jack Sievert.
