ALBION – The Orleans County Veterans Service Agency held an Open House Monday afternoon at its Albion office.  Those attending were able to meet Director Earl Schmidt, administrative assistant Mary Jo Syck and volunteers from the Joint Veterans Council Veterans’ Van Transportation Service.

Additionally, information was provided on benefits and services available to veterans and their families and dependents.  The office has undergone renovations recently which include making it handicapped accessible.

The Veterans Service Agency provides veterans in Orleans County with state and federal veterans benefit counseling and application services. Director Earl Schmidt says he will be able to take these new tri-fold display boards to events around the county, such as the 4-H Fair, to help inform veterans of the services the office can provide.

The office is located at 13996 Route 31 in Albion.
