MACHIAS – A larger percentage of Washington County’s residents are military veterans than any other county in the state.
To help those and other vets, the Washington Hancock Community Agency is holding a Veterans Resource Fair in East Machias this Saturday. It’s an effort to reach out to vets who need social services.
“Just that the need in Washington County is is huge, the need to know what resources are available is huge because it is such a rural area, it is such a huge area. That veterans don’t always know.” Megan Burgess said.
The resource fair is at the East Machias Community Building from 10 until 2 this Saturday.
Veterans can get assistance with any help they might need.
