State Representative Dan Swanson (R-Alpha) announced he will again be hosting Veterans’/ Senior Resources Fairs in late July to help connect area residents with state, county, and local government agencies that may be of assistance to them.
“As a Veteran and Veteran advocate myself, I know it can be a sometimes daunting task to cut the red tape put in front of our returning heroes. Helping Veterans as well as our area seniors to be able to connect with a real, live person from important government and local agencies, face-to-face, is an important aspect to their getting the help and assistance they need,” said Swanson.
“Even if you don’t have a specific concern or are not a Veteran or Senior, these resources fairs may be helpful in finding out more information on services and programs in your community, that’s why I would invite any person interested to come out and join us at one of these exciting events,” Swanson continued.
The Veterans’/ Senior Resources Fairs will take place July 23-26 in Geneseo (Henry County), Aledo (Mercer County), Knoxville (Knox County) and Princeton (Bureau County).
