A clear message was sent out across Stephenville this week — “Thank you Veterans!”.
The Stephenville Chamber of Commerce held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Tarleton Veterans Association at Tarleton State University Thompson Student Center Amphitheater.
The Tarleton Veterans Association is a non-profit organization on a mission to provide advocacy and care for Veterans entering college, as well as to help guarantee their success in attaining a higher education. This new establishment is another of the already numerous support networks in place to ensure that those who so valiantly served our country get the all the assistance they need in achieving their goals outside of the military.
We are pleased to see that Tarleton Veterans Association is making a tried and true effort to help those who defend our freedom, but that’s not all Stephenville is doing to honor it’s Vets this week!
Two Veterans, Johnny Wooten and James Boykin, were celebrated by Stephenville Nursing and Rehab on Friday morning. They were both given certificates honoring them for their exceptional service to America and it’s people.
These two events are just a few of the ways that the Stephenville community spirit takes on a tangible aspect in the Erath County area, and our way of saying “thank you” to those brave souls who risked their lives for the freedom we all enjoy today. If you’d like to join the community and experience what the Stephenville spirit can do first hand, take a look at some Erath County homes for sale.
