1/26/2012
BLOOMSBURG – Rep. David Millard (R-Millville) announced a change to the schedule for a February visit to Columbia County by the Department of Veterans Affairs’ mobile veterans center, which provides services to veterans and their families.

The mobile vet center visit will now take place on Friday, Feb. 10 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The mobile vet center will be located in the parking lot of the TPC Powercenter, located at the intersection of Tenny Street and Route 11, just north of Bloomsburg.

The visit was originally scheduled on Friday, Feb. 3, but was changed due to a veterans meeting in Harrisburg.

“The United States Department of Veterans Affairs operates the mobile veterans center in order to make services easily available in more rural areas,” Millard said. “We’ve already had several veterans benefit from its previous visits. We just want to get the word out about the change of date for the February visit.”
