Prior to the Village of Lewiston monthly meeting on Monday, Joel and Maryjo Erway were presented with a certificate of appreciation for their efforts to honor the military.
For the past three years, the Erways have treated active duty and retired members of the U.S. armed forces to coffee, desserts and other food items over the Independence Day holiday. The Erways have partnered with local businesses the Orange Cat Coffee Co., the Village Bake Shoppe and DiCamillo Bakery.
Village of Lewiston Mayor Anne Welch said, “We’d like to honor them for their community service on Fourth of July weekend by paying for former or active military service members’ (orders). It just goes to show you what wonderful, caring individuals we have in our community.”
