CCHS Honors Veterans Who Volunteer

Thursday, November 9, 2017

Saturday November 11th is Veteran’s Day.  Veteran’s Day is a day for the nation to recognize the men and women who have served in our country’s armed forces. This year we are focusing on those that have served our country, and now donate their time and talent to volunteering here at the Chautauqua County Humane Society.


Dan Zepka served in the United States Army from 1967 to 1970 and was in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969.  Dan has volunteered at CCHS since 2012. 


Tom Whittaker has been volunteering with CCHS for at least 3 years.  Tom served in the United State Army from 1968 to 1971.  He was also in Vietnam.  


Tom Fairbanks joined the United States Navy in 1964 and served with the Seabees.  Tom has been volunteering at CCHS for at least a decade. 

Marty McKotch served in the United States Army from October 1963 to 1965.  He served stateside at Fort Benning in Georgia.  Marty has been volunteering at the shelter for the past 15 to 20 years!

Lee Potts has been volunteering for the Chautauqua County Humane Society for 8 years.  Lee was drafted into the United States Army on his 24th Birthday.  “I was teaching on a Friday, and was in the Army by Monday” Potts said.   He served in the Army from 1971 to 1973.

Thanks to all of our veterans for your service and for volunteering at the Chautauqua County Humane Society!
