Anderson County Veteran's Service Center to remember community covenant, hold Open House

PALESTINE, August 19, 2014— Sponsors Anne and Joe Coleman, Veterans Historic Education Center, and Evelyn Cupit, Director, invite you to an open house at the Anderson County Veterans’ Service Center located at 2000 South Loop 256, Unit 36, in Palestine, on August 20, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

This is the third anniversary of the signing of the community covenant by County Service Officer Vernon Denmon, County Judge Robert Johnston, and former Mayor Bob Herrington. The VHEC was proud to bring this program to the area and to spearhead the agreement with these community leaders. In the past three years, the community has taken to heart the meaning of the covenant “To work together to help provide local resources and services for our military and veteran community and their families.”

One of the most rewarding examples is the Anderson County Veterans’ Service Center, a project that far exceeded expectations of success in the mission to serve those who served our country.

The public is invited to visit the Service Center and see the display of community partners. These are organizations and local businesses that deserve to be recognized for their support of the military and veteran community.

A ceremony recognizing the actual signing of the covenant will be held at 1:00 p.m.
