Southern Tier Veterans Invited to Free Veterans Expo
If you’re a veteran or know one and have questions about housing, health care, benefits, or employment, you’re invited to visit Tioga Downs Casino on Tuesday, October 23, 2018. Tioga Downs Casino has graciously joined forces with the Tioga County Veterans Services Agency and will host the second annual Veterans Expo at the casino, 2384 West River Road in Nichols from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the 23rd.
The Veterans Expo is completely free to attend and is open not only to veterans but also to their family members and caregivers. At the Veterans Expo, you’ll be able to visit with over 30 agencies and you will learn how your friends and neighbors in Tioga and the surrounding counties can help.
The motto of the Tioga County Veterans Service Agency is, “Serving those who served for us.” If you’re unable to attend the Veterans Expo, but need someone to walk you through what benefits you’re eligible for on the local, state, or federal level, stop by the Tioga County Veterans Service Agency in the DSS building at 1062 State Route 38 in Owego.
To learn more about the Veterans Expo, you can reach out to the Tioga County Veterans Service Agency Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. by calling 607- 687-8228.
Also, if you plan to attend the Veterans Expo, Tioga Downs offers a special lunch price for veterans at their buffet on Tuesdays. The price is $6.99 from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. You must show your Military ID and Player’s Card. Your DD-214 or Veteran’s Benefit Card will also be accepted.
