State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) and the City of Seven Hills hosted a Military Benefits Fair on Wednesday, October 29th. The event, attended by many local veterans, was by all accounts a tremendous success.

The benefits fair took place at the Seven Hills Recreation Center 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 who 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.”

“Pairing up with Rep. Anielski and her staff on the Veterans Benefit Fair was a huge win for Seven Hills,” said Seven Hills Senior Coordinator Chris Matthews. “Resident veterans came out in force to support the event. I can see a new tradition of annual Benefits Fairs to educate local vets on the options that they have earned by protecting our country through the Veterans Administration. My hat goes off the Representative Anielski and her staff for their commitment to educating our heroes of their benefits and securing federal funding for Ohio veterans.”

Cuyahoga Valley Career Center cosmetology was on hand to provide free haircuts to all veterans and their families as well as Time to Relax Massage Studio offering their services.

Participating organizations: Cuyahoga County Veterans Service Commission, Ohio Department of Veterans Services, American Red Cross, Senior Helpers NEO, AT&T, Louis Stokes VA Hospital, LifeBanc, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio Veterans Home, Ohio Veterans Bonus Team, Cuyahoga Community College, Cleveland State University, University Hospitals, USO of Northern Ohio, Panera Bread, Manor Care of Parma, HearUSA, Home Instead Senior Care, Crossroads Hospice, Hansen Services, Bush Funeral Homes, Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery, A Time to Relax, Navy Federal Credit Union, Health Markets Insurance, Cross Country Mortgage, VFW Post 7609.
