The Welcome Home Alliance for Veterans will host its monthly veterans' coffee in downtown Cedaredge on Tuesday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to noon. The coffee is a meet-and-greet affair and veterans are welcome to drop in at any time to socialize with their comrades and inquire about services.
The coffee will be held at The Pondy, 220 West Main Street in Cedaredge. Two downtown merchants, The Pondy and Stacy's on Main, will provide free refreshments for the event.
Alliance representatives and veterans service officers will be on hand to answer questions and make referrals. To be added to the alliance's service base, veterans who have not already done so should bring a copy of their DD-214 discharge document or other military identification.
The coffees began in April as an outreach of the Montrose-based alliance which serves western slope veterans. All Delta County veterans are urged to attend the May 15 meeting and return on the third Tuesday of every month for further interaction. For questions, contact the alliance at 970-765-2210. Veterans can also visit the alliance's Montrose office at 4 Hillcrest Plaza Way in Montrose.
For additional information and questions, Delta County veterans can also contact Brian Ayers, county veteran service officer. He works part-time at the Delta County Courthouse, 501 Palmer Street, Suite 106, in Delta. His office hours are the first 10 working days of every month from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. At other times Ayers is available by phone at 970-874-2082 or through email: email@example.com.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
