Norman man named Veteran of The Week

(Continued)

NORMAN —

As we progress in acquiring the property, I will keep everyone posted on the progress. If you have any questions about the project, call John Carter at 292-1999. We also have a building fund that we have started for the project. Donations are tax deductible for this project. When a donation is made to Veterans Corner, specify if it goes to the benevolence fund or the building fund.

For those who need food items, Sid Smith has food boxes prepared each Thursday.

We have three transportation vans that are used to transport veterans to their VA appointments. One of these is equipped with a wheelchair lift.

Our driver who has been with us the longest is Clayton Lee of Dibble. He can be reached at 684-8860. Other drivers are Howard Martin of Norman and he drives the wheelchair accessible van and can be reached at 227-3239, Robert Root of Norman can be reached at 919-3008. Howard Robertson lives in Moore and can be reached at 205-4895.

For all of your questions and assistance about veteran’s benefits, we are located at the Goldsby Community Center each Thursday. The doors open at 7 a.m. and sign in sheets are available at 5:30 a.m.

You also may send donations to Veterans Corner, P.O. Box 704, Washington, OK 73093.

You can call me at 550-8806 or email me at kdgraham@windstream.net.
