A Veteran Resource Fair will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 18 hosted by the Mount Jewett VFW and American Legion at 61 E. Main St. in Mount Jewett.

At the resource fair, Erie VA Medical Center and McKean VA Clinic health experts will provide free healthy venison-friendly stew samples and recipes from an Erie VA dietitian and free blood pressure screenings for veterans eligible for VA services.

Veterans who have never enrolled in VA health care are invited to bring their DD-214 service discharge papers to speak with an eligibility representative on site to see if they’re eligible for services.
