The State Veterans Home at Montrose, where CSEA members are part of a team providing exceptional care to veterans and their family members, has a brand new 49-inch flat screen television and DVD player for residents to enjoy.

That is thanks to the Southern Region Veterans Committee, whose chair, Ed Timberger, delivered the donations (along with several movies on DVD) to the facility on Veterans Day. The donation came after a Veterans Day ceremony at the Southern Region Office in Beacon.

Timberger said it was an honor to visit the state veterans home and meet fellow veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country. CSEA members provide quality care there, including working as nursing assistants, custodial and maintenance workers, doing clerical work, and assisting with recreation.
