This event is free and is an opportunity for veterans to talk with representatives from local and state veteran organizations and agencies. Free coffee and doughnuts will be served at 10:00 AM and a welcome kick-off will begin at 10:15 AM as our guest representatives give a brief description of their area of expertise and then offer participants time to speak with them directly at their designated tables.
On hand that day will be Monroe County Veterans Service Agency, Veterans Outreach Center, Honor Flight, Fairport VFW, Penfield American Legion, and the Veterans Association. Many universal questions can be addressed at this event such as medical benefits, burial benefits, town tax benefits, county discount cards, NY State benefits, obtaining service ribbons and medals. There will also be an opportunity to learn how to find and connect with other men and women who served with you using internet search sites created specifically for this purpose.
A special half-hour presentation The Serendipity of War, Stories from World War II by Ken Andrews will be presented at 11:00 AM. The Legacy at Willow Pond will provide free lunch for all veterans and their spouses at 11:30 AM. The luncheon will be followed by a special presentation from Honor Flight at 12:30 PM.
