Town of Somerset Bicentennial Celebration CORNFEST 5K

Barker, NY

Please join us on Saturday July 22, 2023 for the Cornfest 5K RUN/WALK being held in conjunction with the Town of Somerset Bicentennial Celebration!


For over nine years, the Veterans One-stop Center of WNY has offered veterans, the military, and their family members, holistic support as they transition from service in our armed forces to veteran life. Since opening our doors in 2013, the Veterans One-stop Center has engaged with over 14,000 veterans, service members, and their immediate family members and provided them with one-on-one case management, housing services, and peer support. Our primary value is to put the veteran first, and this is why we are the only local veteran nonprofit that will serve any person that signed up for the United States Military, regardless of their time in service, or their discharge status.
