The Rotary Club of Peabody recently presented a check for $1,000 to the Peabody Veterans Services Department. The club held a "Walk For Veterans and a Day of Service" on Veterans Day 2023 to recognize veterans and raise funds for Peabody's Veterans Services Department. That department helps veterans with disability claims, making appointments, rides to those appointments, financial assistance, education and other veterans' benefits, as well as the bi-annual Veterans Day breakfast. The day of service was led by Peabody Rotary Service Coordinator Stephanie Johnson, as the club cleaned up the area around the Soldiers and Sailors monument in Peabody Square. We also encouraged Peabody residents to do service for veterans, yardwork, errands, rides, etc.
Pictured at the presentation are Peabody Mayor Ted Bettencourt, Peabody Rotary President Cathy Gravel, Peabody Veterans Agent Steve Patten and Peabody Rotarian and veteran Herb Harris.
