Boback to Hold Annual Veterans Appreciation Event and Expo
Rep. Karen Boback (R-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming), in conjunction with Misericordia University, will hold her 12th-annual Veterans Expo and Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The expo will take place from 9-11:30 a.m. in Misericordia University’s Insalaco Hall. A Veterans Recognition Breakfast, open to any 117th District resident who served in our nation’s Armed Forces, will begin at 9 a.m. Both non-combat veterans and those who served during wartime are encouraged to attend this event, which is being held in conjunction with Metz Culinary Management.

Veterans may be accompanied to the breakfast by their spouse (or one guest) at no charge. A special appreciation program to honor our veterans will follow.

The deadline to register for the breakfast is Monday, Oct. 29. To do so, please call Boback’s office at (570) 675-6000, (570) 836-4777, or toll-free at (800) 278-3939. You can also register online at

The expo, which takes place between 9 a.m. and noon, will include a variety of federal, state and local veterans service agencies that will answer individual questions. The expo and program are open to all residents of the 117th Legislative District.

“My veterans event has evolved over the past eleven years from a formal celebration to a breakfast, ceremony and expo,” Boback said. “The event is a response to the needs and requests made by our veterans, and I am proud to sponsor it along with Metz Culinary Management and Misericordia University.”

Boback’s office is also holding a Veterans Art/Essay Contest, which is open to fifth-grade students in the Lake Lehman, Dallas, Tunkhannock, Northwest and Lackawanna Trail school districts.

Interested students should submit either a drawing or an essay, and only one entry per student will be accepted. Entries must be received by Friday, Oct. 19, and will be judged by members of Boback’s Veterans Advisory Committee.

The students who create a top three drawing or essay will be invited along with their parents to the Veterans Program, which begins at 10 a.m. that morning. All entries will be on display at Misericordia’s Insalaco Hall from Nov. 3-11 (Veterans Day). For more specific rules and details, visit
