A member of the community for 26 years, Begandy has served as troop commander of the village’s Veterans of Foreign Wars troop and as a member of the village planning committee. Begandy also organized a monument that honors mothers who lost sons or daughters who died serving their country.

The ceremony honoring Begandy will take place on Nov. 10 at the Knights of Columbus hall on Eastgate Road.
