Area veterans of all ages, active military and their families are urged to attend the Veterans’ Expo & Job Fair, a free, one-day event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, at Spooky Nook Sports, 2913 Spooky Nook Road, Manheim.
Presented by OLP Events, the Veterans’ Expo will connect active, transitioning and retired military members and their families with the benefits and resources available to them through local community-service providers, healthcare professionals, VA benefits counselors, VFWs and American Legions—plus businesses covering everything from home improvement, legal services and finance to retirement living and insurance.
Representatives from the Recorder of Deeds office will be on hand to help all honorably discharged Lancaster County veterans record their DD-214 papers and enroll in the free Thank a Vet veterans discount program. Veterans should bring their full-sized DD-214s to be enrolled.
Additionally, a deserving veteran will receive a Quilt of Valor created by Stitches of West Brandywine.
The Job Fair provides an opportunity for veterans and employers to meet face-to-face to discuss available positions in industries ranging from finance and insurance to construction, healthcare and sales.
In the Job Fair’s Resource Center, military personnel can benefit from mock interviews and learn about VA Medicare options.
