Veterans in southeast Arkansas will have services brought to them from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.
The Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs partnered with Jefferson County, Pine Bluff, White Hall as well as local education and business entities to bring a one-stop shop to area veterans.  This event is the fifth in a series of Saturdays ADVA is working to bring services and resources to Veterans, their family members and survivors on the veteran’s schedule.

“We are bringing resources to the veteran on the veteran’s time. We do this so the veteran does not have to give up an hour or two of wages to come see a veteran service officer during the week. Our veterans deserve that,” said Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs Director Nate Todd.

The Pine Bluff fair will have a variety of services such as veteran claims assistance, veteran health eligibility, immunizations, banking, education, employment and veteran employer. The fourth event in the Series of Saturdays is the Pulaski County Veteran’s Eligibility Fair on Oct. 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 501 W Markham St, Little Rock, AR 72201-1409.

Following the Pine Bluff Veterans Fair is the Veterans Day Ceremony which is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, in front of the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History located at 503 E 9th St, Little Rock. The ceremony moves to the second floor in the event of inclement weather
The Series of Saturdays for 2017 wraps up with the Women’s summit Saturday November 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1111 W Maryland Ave, Sherwood, AR 72120-2754, United States. The Series of Saturdays for 2018 begins in the spring.
