The VAC of Boone County staff was proud to take part in the annual Rockford Vet Center picnic/open house, Friday July 14, 2017. Both Superintendent Bob Ryder and Assistant Superintendent Elizabeth Carville attended and enjoyed the opportunity to reconnect with plenty of veterans and professionals who work with assisting our vets. It was great to see old friends such as State Senator Steve Stadelman and Vietnam veteran and advocate Nick Parnello at the event. The food was great and so was the camaraderie! We can’t wait to take part next year!
