All veterans, veteran service officers and persons interested in the clinic project for Northwest Colorado are invited to attend. Specific invitations will be sent directly to the major proponents for this project.

Property tax exemption applications are at my office and need to be completed by June 1. If you are a 100 percent service-connected disabled veteran, total and permanent rating, get in touch with me for this benefit approved by voters last November.
