The Veteran Resource Guide of the Merrimack Valley is now available on our webpage!

The Veteran Resource Guide of the Merrimack Valley is now available on the “Useful Links” tab of our Veterans Services webpage.
The guide was designed for those with different learning styles and includes
step by step instructions for use. Another helpful resource guide is The Green Book,
published by Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley. Both guides are to be used in
conjunction with each other.  The information contained in the Veterans Resource Guide has been compiled from
local, state and federal resources and used to assist veterans, their families and
professionals working with veterans to find access to service-related benefits.
Every effort has been taken to ensure the best possible accuracy of the information
contained in the guide. However, information is very fluid and is always subject to
change without notice. For that reason, an on-line version with the latest updates can
be accessed at  Should you find an error or know certain information to be incorrect, please contact
the Amesbury Council on Aging at 978-388-8138:   Amesbury Council on Aging.  (2018, May). The Veteran Resource Guide of the Merrimack Valley. Retrieved from

Check out these new Turtle Crossing signs that will be put up late March!

The signs were created by a Sargent School 3rd Grade Brownie Troop to alert drivers to turtles crossing the road (in known areas of turtle mortality) during spring and summer, particularly Blanding's Turtle which is a threatened species in Massachusetts.  The girls presented their signs to the Conservation Commission at the January 23rd meeting.   Please be on the lookout for these carefully prepared signs in the coming weeks!
