Veterans group aims to continue

The following two resolutions were offered by Chairman Robert Clutter at the Dec. 19, 2016, meeting of the standing Council of Veterans Affairs for a vote:

Be it therefore resolved:

That the chief purpose of the Council of Veterans Affairs serving the Dickinson County area has been to establish and maintain an information and counseling center, and that these duties be delegated to the new Dickinson County Department established under the Michigan Public Act 192.

Be it therefore resolved:

That the Council of Veterans Affairs serving the Dickinson County area, as described in its nine-page Constitution and By-Laws, be disbanded as of Dec. 31, 2016.

The resolutions passed on a unanimous vote of those delegates present, representing the 14 veterans groups of Dickinson County.

The general consensus at the December meeting was that we should continue to conduct meetings, open to the public, at 7 p.m. the last Monday of the month at Iron Mountain American Legion Post 50.

The agenda at the Jan. 30 meeting will include the new name and objective of the organization, and the election of officers.

If you feel that the creation of this new council is important to the veterans and the citizens in general of Dickinson County, please attend our meeting.
