Cemetery Care

We would like to invite any and all available to help us clean up, mow, weed-wack, hedge trim, blow, and rake our Post adopted Cemetery.  As appropriately stated by Bill, “We owe it to The Veterans interned there to make sure families can visit their loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice!”

If anybody can make it, please contact Jeff Garland (Garland, Jeff Jeff.Garland@amerisbank.com) so that we can get an accurate count as to who may or may not be able to assist.  We surely would appreciate the help.

Shiloh Cemetery is located at the intersection of Barrett Pkwy and Dallas Hwy.  SEE BELOW

Free Legal Clinic 7.10.2021

The Georgia Veterans Outreach Project will host a free legal clinic this summer on July 10, 2021.

They connect veterans in Georgia with lawyers for quick advice on most civil legal issues. Veterans will meet with lawyers by phone or computer to talk about their legal issues.

Veterans can come to an office in Gainesville to connect. If the veteran cannot come in person, they can connect by computer or by phone from their own home.

Lawyers will provide brief service on issues that include veterans and military benefits, family law, housing, and other civil legal issues. Lawyers will not help with criminal law issues. 

Please share this information with veterans and those who help veterans in your community. 

Contact Alex Scherr at scherr@uga.edu  if you have any questions about this event. Registration will open soon.
