FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) — Tim Duening, Capt. USN (retired) and director of Veterans Services for Easter Seals Tristate, is the headliner at a Sept. 5 networking luncheon for university and college veterans service providers at the Boone Campus of Gateway Community and Technical College.
Gateway is hosting the event on behalf of Easter Seals Tristate Operation Vets THRIVE. The event is intended to bring together the people working in higher education to provide services that help military veterans make a successful transition to civilian life.
Operation Vets THRIVE, which began locally in late 2012, focuses building community support and employment initiatives to assist veterans and their families in the tri-state region. The networking luncheon will help Operation Vets THRIVE in its effort to gain feedback on local needs and resources.
