Prince Frederick, MD – The Calvert Hospice We Honor Veterans program is proud to announce our first Veterans Resource Fair to be held on October 5 from 9 am to 3 pm at St. John Vianney Family Life Center (105 Vianney Lane) in Prince Frederick.

This event features local resources, organizations, and businesses that serve veterans, offer special programs for veterans or want to hire veterans. If you are a military veteran, active duty military member, or someone who is retiring or transitioning out of military life soon, you don’t want to miss this fair!

In addition to the vendors and resources, we are also offering presentations from three organizations that directly serve veterans: Warfighter Advance, Warrior Canine Connection, and Dr. Peter Curran, Medical Director of Home Care for VA Home Based Primary Care. These presentations will offer participants opportunities to ask questions, learn more about the programs, and learn what the organizations are able to do for veterans. At 11 am, the Army field band Country Roads will perform a concert for attendees.
