The Veterans Salute & Information Fair is set for 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the historic National Guard Armory, 1801 South Holtzclaw Ave.
Created to thank veterans and help them learn about benefits, job opportunities and support throughout our community, the Salute is coordinated by the Chattanooga Area Veterans Council (CAVC) and is open at no charge to all military veterans and their families.
There will be free drinks, snacks and live entertainment. Additionally, door prizes will be given away to veterans every 15 minutes throughout the afternoon.
Some 50 organizations and businesses will be on-hand to provide information on veteran benefits, community resources, education opportunities, employment, wellness care, patriotism, veteran organizations and more!
Businesses and organizations which provide services to and/or for military veterans may request an exhibit application by contacting CAVC Past-Chair Patty Parks at 423 326-0839 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Originally established in 1983 as a means to coordinate the activities of various area veterans groups, today’s CAVC is comprised of more than 50 member and associate organizations providing streamlined support efforts, celebratory event coordination and a centralized resource repository for all military veterans and their families in the tri-state area of Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama.
