Veterans Receive Free Oil Change 

The folks at Kontio’s Automotive Repair Shop in Hermon offered a special treat to veterans Thursday.All veterans could receive a free oil change.They were also given a gift bag, free roses from Chapel Hill Floral, and refreshments.B & L Auto Parts donated the oil filters, Napa provided the windshield washer fluid and Advance Auto Parts helped with the oil.Owner Jeffrey Kontio says he felt it was the least they could do for all the veterans.” They’ve given the ultimate sacrifice to the country. Some of them have gone and not come back and we need to honor the ones that have served and have come back to keep us a free nation.”” I think it’s good for any veteran to have it offered because people don’t always appreciate what we did.”Kontio says plenty of veterans took advantage of the service and they were booked up.
