Veterans Affairs Information:
The Sioux County Veterans Affairs Commission meets at 1:00 p.m. on the third Monday of every month at the Veterans Affairs office, unless otherwise posted. Meetings are open to the public. Agenda item requests must be submitted a minimum of 24 hours prior to the close of the business day prior to the date of the scheduled meeting allow for posting of the proposed agenda in compliance with Iowa law.
It is with heavy hearts that the Sioux County Veterans Affairs Commission announces the cancellation of the November 11, 2020 annual Veterans Day Open House breakfast.
In making this difficult decision the Commission considered many things, including the national CDC recommendations pertaining to increased Covid-19 exposure risks associated with large group gatherings and buffet-style meals, as well as the known elevated risk for health complications should a member of our elderly and/or physically-vulnerable veteran population contract this disease. The final deciding factor was confirmation from HyVee Corporation, who provides the yummy Thank-You Breakfast meal to our attending veterans and their spouses, has suspended their meal catering services indefinitely due to ongoing Covid concerns.
We ask that you please save the date for next year’s Veterans Day Open House, scheduled for Thursday, November 11, 2021. We are hoping that you all will be able to participate at that time, as in the past, and look forward to seeing you then! Until that time, the county veterans service officer remains available by telephone and video chat to assist with VA benefit questions.
