Veterans’ Resource Fair to Be Held at Hunterdon Medical Center

Hunterdon Hospice and the Hunterdon County Division of Senior, Disability, and Veterans Services salute our servicemen and women. Thank you for your service and “Welcome Home!” to recently returning veterans. We know that sometimes the readjustment to civilian life from the military can be stressful for you and your families. There is so much to think about and sometimes you don’t know where to turn for help and guidance.  Hunterdon Hospice and the Hunterdon County Division of Senior, Disability, and Veterans Services will host a Veterans’ Resource Fair on  Saturday, November 5th at the Hunterdon Medical Center from 10 AM to 1 PM.

Features of the day include a Presentation of Colors by the Frenchtown VFW, playing of the National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance led by World War II Veteran Archie Fagan. The Hunterdon Harmonizers will entertain everyone with an Armed Forces Medley and songs throughout the day.

As of now, over 20 organizations dedicated to assisting veterans and their families will be on-site to discuss their services and programs. One beneficial aspect offered will be an on-site VA Claims Clinic. Breakout Sessions will be led by Hunterdon Healthcare physicians and professionals. Attendees will enjoy demonstrations of acupuncture, aromatherapy, meditation techniques, and other alternative methods of stress relief geared toward veterans provided by Hunterdon Healthcare’s Integrative  Medicine.   Veterans will be able to speak with well-informed representatives from all of the organizations on-site.  Veterans and their families attending the fair will discover a wealth of information on health services, housing, education, jobs, transportation businesses that promote hiring veterans, local business that offer discounts to veterans, VA benefits and much more!

Come and spend the day with us and get caught up and “plugged in” to these all-important and vital services and benefits to which you, as a veteran may be entitled.
