Vets Standdown slated

The Nevada County Veterans Standdown Task Force will conduct the fourth annual Veterans Standdown on Oct. 4, 5 and 6 at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

The three-day intervention program is designed to assist veterans from Nevada, Sierra and Placer counties with a “hand up not a hand out” to veterans in need of services that will improve their lives and enable them to become re-established as productive citizens.

Many services will be available from community organizations and other agencies, including counseling, employment assistance, medical care and legal advocacy, as well as food, clothing and shelter during the event – all provided at no cost to veterans in need.

Entrance to fairgrounds will only be through Gate No. 4. For more information, call the Nevada County Veterans Service office at 273 3396.
