Lumpkin County Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee Website Page Launches

The Lumpkin County Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee was established by resolution in 1997 with members appointed by the Board of Commissioners.   While they are most commonly known for sponsoring the annual Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies, they are also charged with overseeing the Veterans Park and tank located on Courthouse Hill.  This dedicated group of individuals has now embarked on a mission to reach as many veterans in our community as possible to make them aware of all the services and benefits that are available to them.  As part of this effort, the committee has developed a web page which is dedicated to helping connect veterans to services and benefits.  The page is now live and can be found at  http://www.lumpkincounty.gov/veterans-affairs/ .  The committee has also placed the application for memorial wall engraving and memorial markers on the site so that families can easily find the documents if they wish to honor their loved ones.
