State Senator Eric Lesser spent time thanking local veterans during a visit to the Friends of Granby Veterans’ 2nd Annual Chicken Barbecue held Sunday, June 14 at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Pavilion.
“Our veterans gave so much in service to their country, and this event is proof that our communities recognize that sacrifice,” Lesser said. “As state Senator I am committed to ensuring the Commonwealth offers its own support in the form of sound policies and adequate funding for veteran services.”
Senator Eric Lesser is a member of the Joint Committee on Veterans & Federal Affairs, and recently wrote an op-ed on the importance of supporting local veterans and their family members.
The event was organized by Friends of Granby, a group of residents raising funds to build a memorial honoring Granby’s veterans. Senator Lesser was accompanied by Granby Selectman Mark Bail, and met with several veterans and their families.
All proceeds raised from the event will support the construction of the Granby Veterans Memorial Project. For more information, visit: http://granbyveteransmemorial.org/
