Swanson to host in-person Veterans’ & Seniors’ Resources Fairs in August

State Representative Dan Swanson announced he will again be hosting Veterans’ & Seniors’ Resources Fairs in early August 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’ & Seniors’ Resources Fairs will take place August 3-6 in Aledo (Mercer County), Princeton (Bureau County), Galesburg (Knox County) and Kewanee (Henry County).
