Granville County Veterans Services will open an office in Creedmoor to better serve the residents of southern Granville County. Veterans Services staff will begin operation of the southern office at 1546 South Campus Drive, Creedmoor on Wednesday, February 23 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The office is located at the existing Sheriff’s Office Satellite location beside the South Branch location of the Granville County Public Library. This location will be staffed by Veterans Services on the third Wednesday of each month.
This location will provide Veterans with assistance processing forms for license plates, tax relief, and hunting licenses. The Creedmoor location will also allow Veterans in southern Granville County the opportunity to drop- off paperwork locally without making the round trip to the main office located at 141 Williamsboro Street in Oxford. To set up an appointment at either Veterans Services location, Veterans should call (919) 693-1484. Currently, walk-ins are not permitted.
The Creedmoor location also provides the opportunity for additional programming sponsored by the Granville County Veterans’ Affairs Committee. A Veterans support group will meet at the Creedmoor office twice a month starting Monday, February 28 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. This group will be open to Veterans of all ages from all service branches and will meet on a drop-in basis with no attendance requirements. The purpose of these support group meetings will be to hold informal gatherings of Veterans for fellowship, conversation, and comradery. This will also be an opportunity to introduce services provided by the Veterans Services Office for those who may be unfamiliar. The new southern Veterans support group will supplement the existing group that meets in Oxford weekly on Mondays at the Granville County Senior Center (107 Lanier Street, Oxford) from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
“On behalf of the Granville County Veterans’ Affairs Committee, we sincerely appreciate the efforts and support the Committee has received from the Granville County Board of Commissioners, Granville County Sheriff John Hardy, and County Manager Michael Felts,” said Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Michael Turner. “We are thrilled to expand the services provided to Veterans in Granville County. The Veterans’ Affairs Committee believes this new location will provide a positive impact for Veterans and their families that reside in southern Granville County.”
The opening of a new Veterans Services location aligns with Granville County’s 2021-2025 Strategic Plan to provide convenient access to services for all residents in Granville County. This office location was made possible with the support of the Granville County Sheriff’s Office to allow shared access of their Creedmoor Satellite Office to provide these additional County services.
