Vets Town Hall
Sunday, Nov. 5, 1 p.m.
There will be a community forum aiming to increase understanding and connections between local veterans and the community at large at the McCarthy Arts Center at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester. This is one of five Vets Town Halls throughout the state in early November. Others are in Bradford, Brattleboro, Rutland and South Royalton. At the events veterans are invited to speak for up to 10 minutes about what their service means to them. Non-veterans are encouraged to attend and listen. These events are free and nonpolitical, and all perspectives are valued. “Having an opportunity to gather with community members assists with the reintegration process and makes it possible for us to move beyond a narrative of conflict by honoring and sharing our stories,” says Jon Turner, Vets Town Hall board member and emcee at the Colchester town hall.
