Assemblymember Christopher Eachus (D-99) recently dedicated a portion of Route 32 as “Catholic War Veterans Memorial Highway,” starting at the intersection with Quaker Avenue in Cornwall and extending north to intersections with Route 300 and Route 94.

“As commander of Catholic War Veterans Joseph R. Farina Memorial Post 386, I know I am speaking for all the officers and members when I say what a great honor it is to have the renaming of a portion of a state highway,” said Bob Schiela. “We know how hard Assemblymember Eachus worked to get this bill passed, and it is just another example his dedication. We thank him, not only for what he did for this post, but what he does for all veterans in our community.”

The Catholic War Veterans is an organization composed of service members of all branches and their families, dedicated to veterans’ rights and upholding American ideals. The Catholic War Veterans Post 386 was chartered on July 11, 1988, and serves all veterans in the Orange County area by offering tailored services and activities to address community needs.

Those interested in seeing the newly installed signs can travel northbound on Route 32 before the Moodna Creek bridge, or southbound on Route 32 near the “Five Corners” interchange.
