County officials asking local businesses to ‘return the favor’ to military veterans
Some St. Lawrence County officials are asking businesses in the county to “Return the Favor” to military service veterans by arranging discounts for products and services.
In a message to business owners in the county, County Clerk Mary Lou Rupp and Veterans Services Director Michael Boprey, Jr., explain the “Return the Favor – Thank You for Your Service” initiative is getting under way lining up businesses to participate.Eligible veterans will get a picture ID card, and the county will provide a professionally designed window decal identifying each business as a participant. The merchants’ names, addresses and discount offers will be printed in a pamphlet that will be distributed to St. Lawrence County veterans.
The goal of the organization is to be up and running by Veterans Appreciation Day on June 16.
