Seminar for local veterans: Preparing for the Future
Few of us are comfortable talking about death, whether our own or the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, our veterans are often guilty of not talking about it.
On Monday, May 23 at 6 p.m. the Rowan County Veterans Service Office will host a seminar to help veterans and their families with these important plans and decisions.
Representatives will come from the National Cemetery Administration, the Salisbury Community Living Center, the Salisbury Veterans Hospice, the North Carolina State Veterans’ Home and the Rowan County Register of Deeds, to speak and answer questions.
Held at the Rowan County Cooperative Extension facilities, 2727 Old Concord Road. To RSVP, call the Veterans Service Office at 704-216-8138.
