State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently joined with the Mt. Zion Church in hosting a Military Resource Fair.
The event took place at Mt. Zion Church in Oakwood Village, featuring a variety of organizations geared towards helping those who have served our country—no matter what era—their spouses, and families. Throughout the day there were agency representatives present to help military personnel and their families with benefit questions, employment opportunities, and many other military-related areas. Free continental breakfast, manicures, hand massages, veteran IDs and additional offers were available to those in attendance.
"I am extremely appreciative to Reverend Macon and the personnel at Mt. Zion Church for housing the fair and to Sam's Club for providing the breakfast," said Rep. Anielski. "It is truly gratifying for so many businesses and agencies to participate and assist our military personnel with whatever needs our veterans might be experiencing.  We value our military who have served and all of us should thank them for providing us our freedoms."

This past week’s event marks the 10th military resource fair hosted by Rep. Anielski.  Thousands of military personnel and their families have attended the fairs held throughout Cuyahoga County to find out about available resources for themselves and family members.  The Cuyahoga County Fiscal Office produced standardized veteran identification cards for those in attendance, thanks to House Bill 173, sponsored by Rep. Anielski, which became law in August.  In addition to the standardization of veteran ID cards across the state, the law allows the IDs to be valid for 10 years instead of only 4 years."

The next military fair will be in the spring of 2017 at a branch of the Cuyahoga County Library.
