Veterans Benefits Assistance

Veterans Benefits

Calling All Veterans

Are you a veteran of any branch of the US military, not necessarily a veteran of a war? Do you have questions regarding Federal, State or County services or programs for veterans, families or dependents? If so, you can call Joel Estey directly at 206-612-2816.

 

Veterans Round Table

Every Monday we will have seating reserved for all interested veterans (no matter their lengths of service) to sit together to talk about their service related experience unique to this particular group of people. Who better to understand your problems, victories and everyday challenges than someone else who has "been there, done that." No reservations are necessary.

Lunch will be available at 12:00 for a suggested donation of $3 and the hall is available until 5 pm for general discussion.

Requirement: For Veterans and their Families

For more information email Tracy or Jamie or call 425-432-1272.

 

Take a Vet to Lunch

Take a Vet to Lunch

Friday, November 11

Say thank you and sponsor a Vet’s lunch for only $3.00 on Friday, November 11. Such a little price to pay to thank our Veterans for such an important job. No Veterans will be charged for lunch on this day, and we hope to get a large sponsorship to support this program. 

Donations can be made in person, by phone, or by mail.

Please RSVP at the front desk if you plan to attend the “Take a Vet to Lunch” so we know how many to expect.   

Guest Speaker

Storm McNeil will be here to discuss the planning and construction of the Greater Maple Valley Veterans Memorial which will be constructed on the corner near the Community Center. 

For more information email Tracy or Jamie or call 425-432-1272.

Local Students Give thanks to veterans
