Ongoing operations at the PVT Leonard Post #6251, reduced membership, along with COVID-19 effects, have fueled the group’s decision to sell. The PVT Leonard Post #6251 has resided at 2450 Walden Ave since 1988.
Chadd Soto, Licensed NYS Real Estate Salesperson and Real Estate Facilitator at McGuire Development, is representing the sale of the PVT Leonard Post #6251, any purchase inquiries should be directed to [email protected]. The current Post site on Walden Ave previously hosted a variety of community and Post events.
PVT Leonard Post Adjutant Barry Nowicki states the decision of selling of the Post is more than placing a “for sale” sign on the building. The PVT Leonard Post membership is fortunate to have McGuire Development Company as well as VFW NY State Quartermaster Dan McMahon through this journey. The sale of the PVT Leonard Post creates a golden opportunity to bring into existence a new beginning for VFW members. Their new home, once decided upon, will continue the 74 years of legacy in community service and commitment to our veterans and Cheektowaga/WNY community.
The Leonard Post VFW members have reflected on their current member base needs and cost analysis of continuing to operate out of 2450 Walden Ave, and determined a smaller space was the necessary next move for the Post. Richard Shull, Corporation President, states their mission- to pursue and strengthen the comradeship among the VFW membership- cannot continue under the present conditions they are in. Due to the erosion of VFW member participation, financial stability, as well as the effects of COVID-19, the Post is forced to downsize and march forward.
The Leonard Post remains one of the largest in Erie County and NYS. Many programs of community service and achievement speak to the dedicated members of the Post, Auxiliary, and Dad’s Post #203. McGuire Development is proud to represent and collaborate with the Post on the sale of 2450 Walden Ave, and assist in the continued memory of it’s namesake: 19 year old Leonard Post Jr. who gave his life in “Operation Overlord”, invasion of Europe in World War II. The fuel for VFW lifelong existence is the younger veteran: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, just to name a few. “We want to create a user friendly atmosphere where we can better serve our veterans, their families, develop closer community relationships, and provide a continuation of services that can benefit our comrades: Our home is your home.” – Pvt. Leonard Post 6251 Commander Carlo Carbone.
