Shown in a storefront window across the street from the post office in Ransomville is a tribute to former 1st District Niagara County Legislator Clyde Burmaster, who lost his lengthy battle to cancer earlier this fall. It was prepared by Ransomville resident Ruth Anne Buzzard, who wrote, “The Hamlet of Ransomville gives a Hometown Tribute to their friend, and Niagara County Legislator Clyde Burmaster.
“Clyde Burmaster served as Niagara County Legislator for the Ransomville District for 28 years. He served in the Army and was a proud member of the American Legion Post #830.
“Clyde Burmaster served as the president of the Ransomville Free Library for many years.
“Service to the community was Clyde Burmaster’s calling, and he served with joy.” (Photo by Wayne Peters).
