Boback Invites Veterans from the 117th District to Annual Veterans Recognition Expo
HARRISBURG – Rep. Karen Boback (R-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming) invites veterans residing in the 117th Legislative District to her annual Veterans Recognition Expo, to be held on Saturday, Nov. 7, at Misericordia University in Dallas from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Insalaco Hall.

The event begins with a free Veterans Breakfast at 9 a.m. The expo includes more than 35 veterans-related vendors who will be on hand to provide information and counseling services, and the Mobile Veterans Unit will be parked outside Insalaco Hall. The Veterans Recognition ceremony will be held in the Lemmond Theater and will feature guest speakers and World War II veterans, Francis Turner and Willis Ide. Veterans are welcome to attend a single event or all three of the events.

Other organizations involved in this year’s veterans event will include Jr. Leadership Wilkes-Barre, Dallas Area and Lake Lehman school districts, Junior Girl Scouts of Lake Winola and Boy Scout Troop 281 of Dallas.

“It is very important that we take the time to recognize and remember the sacrifices made by our veterans. This event will help local veterans access the resources they need, and will give all of us an opportunity to express our gratitude for their service,” said Boback.

The expo is open to all veterans who reside in the 117th Legislative District and is held in conjunction with Misericordia University and Metz Culinary Management. The 117th Legislative District includes all of Wyoming County; Benton Township, Dalton, La Plume Township and West Abington Township in Lackawanna County; and Dallas, Dallas Township, Fairmount Township, Franklin Township, Harvey’s Lake, Hunlock Township, Lake Township, Lehman Township and Ross Township in Luzerne County.

Registration is required for the breakfast. To register, contact Boback’s office at 570-836-4777, at 570-675-6000, or toll free at 800-278-3930.
