joe says "help vets"

Joe loves to support any group that lends a helping hand to those who have bravely served our country, and that's exactly what Veterans Count does. An organization that sprung from Easterseals, another fantastic nonprofit, Veterans Count is a compassionate, responsive, highly-targeted care program for veterans and their families who were “falling through the cracks” as a result of service to their country.

Veterans Count has received the highest praise and support from our national and local elected officials and is viewed as a comprehensive and successful model to emulate throughout the country. As more and more service members and their families continue to struggle with the challenges of multiple deployments, the need to provide support continues to grow. That's why groups like Veterans Count are so vital to our country, and why Joe is happy to spread their message atop the city this week.

Tomorrow, August 22nd, is the annual Barnard Beats event. Get ready to rock in South Berwick at Barnyard Beats to benefit Veterans Count Maine- all while enjoying some AMAZING BBQ! The night will feature the amazing “Impersonators of Romance”, which plays a range of your favorite bands that these impersonators will make you think are really there and also karaoke!
