We are proud to have heard Mayor Rosas during the Common Council Meeting announce that the very popular Quad-State magazine (Lake Erie Living) has recognized Dunkirk Festivals & Special Events and awarded the City Of Dunkirk with the title of “Best New Hot Spot” on Lake Erie!

Open Letter to all Veterans from Mayor Wilfred Rosas

I am grateful always to our men and women who have served this country.  But on this day, I personally give homage and appreciation to all of our Veterans.  To each of those who have served, as well as those military personnel who are serving today, thank you for your service to our country!

Veterans Day is a day set aside for each of us to remember the many men and women who have fought to keep us and our country free from tyranny and a dictatorship.  This is a day in which we celebrate the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans.

To all veterans everywhere, and especially to those living in the City of Dunkirk, thank you.


Mayor Wilfred Rosas
