Rowan Veteran Services office grand opening today

SALISBURY — Rowan County will hold a grand opening today at the newly finished office for Veteran Services.

The event starts at 3 p.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m. It will be held at West End Plaza, 1935 Jake Alexander Blvd.

The Veteran Services department’s offices will be located near the main entrance to West End Plaza, adjacent to Thelma’s Down Home Cooking.

Refreshments will be provided during the grand opening.

Previously, Veteran Services was temporarily located at the county’s building on Old Concord Road. Before that, Veteran Services was located at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center. The office at West End Plaza is larger and allows for more privacy than its Rufty-Holmes location.

The Rowan County Board of Elections is the only other county office currently located at West End Plaza, the former Salisbury Mall which the county bought in 2013.

More county departments are expected to follow.
