Veterans meet

The Harrison County Veterans Service held a day for veterans to talk with those in the medical field; have blood drawn; discuss veterans problems; learn about the 2020 census and the need for workers in Harrison County; explore home-away-from-home health facilities; and get details about insurance, Medicare and Harcatus for housing. Among veterans taking part in the event that was held at the Harrison County Fairgrounds commercial building were, from left, Lawrence Oliver, Jerry Capers, Vee-Jay Beadling and Jay Kolenc, all of Hopedale. Tricia Largent of the Harrison County Veterans Service office said this was the first time in 18 years that such a veterans meeting had taken place, and she said it was a success.
