Area veterans of all ages, active military and their families are urged to attend the free Veterans’ Expo & Job Fair from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, at the Lebanon Expo Center, 80 Rocherty Road, Lebanon.

 

Presented by OLP Events, the Veterans’ Expo & Job Fair was first held in Lancaster County in 2014 but now includes events in Berks County, the Capital Area, and York County. 

It is the first time the free event will be held in Lebanon County, which is home to more than 4,000 veterans, according to a 2019 report by the commonwealth’s Center for Workforce Information & Analysis, part of the Department of Labor and Industry.

The one-day event connects active, transitioning and retired military members with the benefits and resources available to them through local businesses and organizations.

The day’s opening ceremony at 9 a.m. will include the Red Rose Veterans Honor Guard performing the Presentation of Colors, which honors each branch of the military.

Exhibitors represented will include community service providers, healthcare professionals, VA benefits counselors, education/training providers, and business startup assistance, as well as businesses covering everything from home improvement, legal services, and finance to retirement living and insurance.

Within the Job Fair, employment seekers can visit the Resource Center for financial services and planning assistance, small-business counseling, and other helpful information for translating military careers to civilian opportunities.

Sponsors include 50plus LIFE, BusinessWoman magazine, Disabled American Veterans, Pennsylvania Veterans of Foreign Wars and WHTM abc27.
