VA Mobile Medical Unit Ribbon Cuttings
The Chamber works directly with the Veteran's Administration and the Friends of the St. Clair County Senior Center to bring the VA Mobile Medical Unit to Osceola.  The Bus comes to the Life Center at Rivers Crossing the 3rd Thursday of the month providing veterans in the area health care without the long drive to Kansas City.
Ground breaking and ribbon cuttings have been a staple for the Osceola Chamber and happen more than people realize.  We see the progress the town is making every time we bring out the "big scissors"!
