On January 20, 2018, R.W. Mike Driver, MSA Representative for the Batavia VA Medical Center, gathered a large group representing numerous Lodges from the Letchworth District, York Rite Bodies and the Boy Scouts to present gifts of clothing articles to the patients.  Members of the group had a great time packaging the gifts, meeting, visiting and honoring the Veterans.  This was an outstanding and successful effort uniting the Brothers, Companions, Sir Knights, and Boy Scouts residing within the new Letchworth District.
