MANCHESTER, NH – Manchester VA Medical Center will be hosting an Open House Recreation and Leisure Expo on Feb. 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the lobby of the Primary Care lobby, Mountain Entrance, as part of our National Salute to Veterans. Annually, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) celebrates National Salute to Veterans. The purpose of the National Salute to Veterans program is to pay tribute and express appreciation to Veterans. It is an opportunity to increase community awareness of the services and benefits available at the medical center, and to become involved as volunteers
“At Manchester VA we realize the adverse impact of a sedentary lifestyle,” said Alfred Montoya, Acting Medical Center Director. “So we are taking this opportunity to learn from Veterans first-hand what their interest is, and looking to expand services based on that feedback.”
The Open House will focus on recreation and leisure offerings to promote healthy living and provide an opportunity for Veterans and employees to share their recreation and leisure interests. At the same time, those in attendance will have the opportunity to meet with Manchester VA staff members and our community partners and learn how to get involved.
This Open House allows us another opportunity to honor Veterans and their loved ones for their service by connecting them with the care they have earned and deserve.
