Rep. Vella-Wilkinson organizes annual

Veterans and Military Families Outreach Day


STATE HOUSE — The House of Representatives will host its annual Military and Veterans Outreach Day on Wednesday, April 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. on the second floor of the State House

The event, which is being organized by Rep. Camille F.J. Vella-Wilkinson (D-Dist. 21, Warwick), will give veterans and their families an opportunity to network and get a greater understanding of the resources available to them.

“This annual event has been very successful, encouraging veterans and military families to become engaged with their state government,” said Representative Vella-Wilkinson, a Navy veteran who serves on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee. “Veterans are important part of our constituency and we’d like to see them become more involved in state government. It is also an excellent opportunity for the organizations to network with one another, share resources and maximize services for the veterans community statewide.”

Veterans and their families will be given an opportunity to meet their state representatives and discuss the issues that have an impact on their lives.

The event is free and open to the public.
