Veterans’ Event

The Washington Hancock Community Agency’s Supportive Services for Veterans’ Families (SSVF) program will host a Veterans’ Resource Fair on Saturday April 18th at the East Machias Town Hall on 571 Main Street.   The event will be open from 10 am to 2 pm, and will offer active duty, retired, guard, and reserves from all military services the opportunity to ask questions about services that are available to them. Representatives from a wide array of national, state, and local organizations will be on hand to talk to veterans and their families and to share information and answer questions.

 Veterans who attend the event will be able to get help with Veterans’ benefit questions and enrollment, VA Healthcare, housing assistance, legal assistance, mental health and substance abuse prevention, job search tips, transportation, homelessness prevention, and more. Also at the event, The Machias and Eastport Reiki Clinics will provide free Reiki sessions, which is a great way to relax. Various legislative representatives and candidates will also be attending the event to listen to veterans’ concerns and issues.

 There will be door prizes, free admission and refreshments at the event.  Limited transportation opportunities are available. Arrangements can be made by calling Lucy Barnhart at 610-5937 before 4:30 pm on Friday, April 10th.
