HAPPY VETERANS DAY to all of our Veterans of the County!

Our 3rd Annual Veterans Appreciation Dinner and Seminar was a huge success!  Thank you to all that came and to the Blairstown Legion for being such gracious hosts!

We have Vietnam Veterans Books commemorating the 50th Anniversary.  These complimentary books are for any Veteran who resides in Benton County that was active duty during Vietnam.  Please bring your DD214 to the office to receive your book and "Thank You" for your service.
