State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) and the Cuyahoga County Library System hosted a Military/Veterans Resource Fair on Friday, May 1st. The event, attended by many local veterans, was by all accounts a tremendous success.

The benefits fair took place at the Mayfield Library Branch and featured a variety of organizations geared towards helping those who have served our country, no matter what era, as well as their spouses and families. Throughout the day, hundreds of people attended, and there were agency representatives and local businesses that assisted military personnel and their families to sign up for their benefits and other services.

“All of our military personnel have given personal sacrifices in leaving their loved ones to protect our freedoms,” Rep. Anielski said. “It is of the utmost importance that we make sure that all those who have served, no matter what era and no matter in what capacity, are aware of the benefits and services that they deserve.”

“The resource fair was excellent. Thank you to all the service providers, agencies and employers that came out to support our veterans,” said Director Tim Gorrell, Ohio Dept. of Veterans Services. “Resource fairs like this help ensure our veterans and military families are connected to the benefits and services they have earned.
