In honor of Memorial Day, the library will have a special Story Hour on Tuesday, May 23rd, at 6:00 p.m. The story for that evening will be read by our own local Retired Master Sergeant Charles R. Welty.
Ryan was born in Olean, NY, and attended Portville Central School. He then went on to attend Alfred University and JCC. After which, due to his wish to continue his education, he enlisted in the Air Force.
Ryan served for 23 years as a Fuels Technician. He also served in other positions, which include First Sergeant, Training Officer, Safety Officer, Finance Officer, and Supervisor, and has earned numerous awards throughout his career.
We are so happy that Ryan has agreed to be our special guest and help us honor Memorial Day!
