Happy Thanksgiving to you and to all of our Codgers.

 Hey our older Codgers.  I’m hope you all remember Dick Charcalla. He was on the Zeke’s Zombies Team.

  It would be great if we could get a bunch of us to meet at the Dusckas Funeral Home, Inc., 2607 Buffalo Rd., on this Saturday from 11:15 ish a.m. until the time of the Funeral Service at noon.

I would like to see if we could get a good turnout for one of our past Codgers (It has been a while since we have to do this). It would be great for those who can make it to wear your Codger dress shirt (or if any new Codgers who

 does not have a dress shirt to just wear your regular Jersey. I would like for all that can make it to meet in the lobby so we can all go in to meet in front of his casket to give him a final goodbye. After we do this facing the casket I want us all to turn and face everybody and say WE LOVE YOU MAN!!! And if you can make it on Saturday I would like for you to bring your bat so we can do a bat salute in his honor on his way out of the funeral home (we have done this in the past for other Codgers.

  Sorry about the short notice as it was just put in today’s newspaper.

Dick loved sports, attending events to cheer on his children and grandchildren, playing softball most of his life including being one of the founding members of the Erie Codgers Slo-Pitch softball team and participating in many other events. He continued to be active and enjoyed his retirement with his family and friends until the day he died.

Dick was from Bitumen, Pa., and married the love of his life, Vera Mae Saltsman of Renovo, Pa. on October 8, 1949. They were married 62 years until she passed away in 2011. He was also preceded in death by a son, Gary L. Charcalla.

The U.S. Army Heritage and Education center is seeking the stories of veterans.

A number of area volunteers were trained and are giving out surveys to veterans.

Once the surveys are completed and returned to the Heritage Center, the ambassadors are assigned oral interviews.

Deborah McQuaid of Harborcreek Township is a volunteer ambassador and is looking for veterans. She will be a speaker at tomorrow’s luncheon.

If you are interested in telling your story of service and want to be part of this vital historical project, please call her at 969-3039 and leave a message.

She will return your call quickly!
