Rep. Dan Swanson hosted a Veterans’ & Senior Resource Fair on Wednesday in Knoxville to provide local Veterans’ and Seniors an opportunity to interact face-to-face with state and local agencies available to assist them.
The Knox County event was the third in a series of four events Rep. Swanson is hosting this week throughout the 74th Legislative District. Monday’s event was in Geneseo, Tuesday’s was in Aledo and Thursday’s in Princeton.
Knox County’s event was hosted at the American Legion Post 749 at 749 Henderson Road in Knoxville. Dozens of attendees joined dozens of exhibitors representing state, local, and community agencies in providing information to Veterans and seniors in attendance. The Sons of the American Legion hosted a free lunch of hot dogs and chips at the Knoxville event.
“As a Veteran, Veteran Advocate, and Legislator, I am honored to host these events to help Veterans and Seniors connect with local services, right here in their own community that can help improve their quality of life,” said Rep. Dan Swanson. “I feel this is just one small way we can make sure they know about services and programs helpful to them.”
