In 2023, Hamilton County will be celebrating it’s 200th Anniversary as a county in Indiana!! The Bicentennial team asked the Hamilton County Veterans Corp to help them do something for our Hamilton County Military and Veterans so we are hosting a county wide Celebration and Resource Fair for our Military, Veterans and their Families July 8, 2023. We hope to reach as many of our Military/Veteran population as possible since the county will be celebrating for a month in each township of Hamilton County this year. We also hope to encourage our whole community to stop in and see what we are doing here in Hamilton County. The more we learn about our neighbor's issues, needs and the resources readily available to address those issues and needs, the stronger we will be as a community of friends helping friends.
Some of the Free Resources offered will include providers and outreach specialists from Federal VA Benefits, Roudebush VA Hospital, County Veteran Service Officers, Indiana Department of Veteran Affairs, Veterans Readiness and Employment, Military OneSource, Indiana WorkOne, County Health Department, City Health, Mental Health Wellness and Suicide Awareness, Housing, Homelessness, Insurance, Retirement, Legal, Financial, Faith Based, Education, Employment, Family Programs, HVAF of Indiana and so much more.
Our opening ceremony will be Honoring, Remembering and Celebrating YOU, our Hamilton County Military, Guard, Reserve, Veterans and your Families. Retired Brigadier General Stewart Goodwin, an Honorary Survivor of the USS Indianapolis CA 35, will be Honoring and Remembering our Fallen Heroes from the USS Indianapolis as it sank 78 years ago, July 30, 1945. Then Kristgen Ludeker-Seibert will be enlightening all attendees on the progress Hamilton County's Stronger Veterans Stronger Communities Coalition is making in regards to preventing suicides through community connectedness and awareness. We all can be a part of the solution as we become more knowledgeable to not on only our Veterans/Military needs but all our needs and the local resources to address those needs. We will be showing this opening ceremony a couple times during the resource fair for all to see and hear.
To simplify our attendees entrance into the sea of vendor booths, we will have a floor map to show the areas where their needs may be addressed - like a department store.
If any of our neighbors wish to help in future events or you want to become a part of the solution, please come to our Hamilton County Veterans Corp table to find out how you too may help build Stronger Veterans and Stronger Communities and become a member of the Hamilton County Veterans Corp.
