In a partnership with 4th Degree Knights of Columbus, the St. Clair County Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans System Navigator from Community Mental Health, the Blue Water Center for Independent Living, and Buddy-to-Buddy, veterans have an opportunity to connect with other veterans and give them a voice in St. Clair County. Military Meet and Greets are held on the third Wednesday of each month from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Center in Port Huron.
Nancy Deising, Outreach Coordinator for the St. Clair County Department of Veterans Affairs, said, the gathering gives veterans a chance to connect with local resources while providing a forum to express their needs and concerns to local officials. Deising also said the group is an opportunity for veterans “to share stories and gain comradery with other veterans in the area.”
The meetings have a light meal and an educational or informational component as well as feedback sessions. Donations from the community are welcome to cover refreshments and space rental for the group. Veterans can get more information from the St. Clair County Department of Veterans Affairs.
