I am excited to introduce to you a program new to Orleans County.  It’s called the “Thank a Veteran Discount Program” and this is how it will work.  All eligible Veterans will receive a photo ID card from the County Clerk distinguishing them as an honorably discharged Veteran.  We invite all Veterans to click on the Eligibility Criteria link for details.

Many county merchants have already agreed to honor the card by providing holders with a discount on purchases or services varying from 5% to 50%.  You may view a list of participating businesses by clicking the Participating Merchants link.  Any business interested in offering our Veterans a discount on goods or services may obtain an application form and instructions by going to the Business Application link. 

This is just one small, but very special, way for us to say “Thank You” and show our deep appreciation to the men and women who have protected us, who continue to protect us and allow the freedom we all enjoy.
