Here is a South Holland event worth getting out of the house for on Oct. 9.
SALUTE TO VETERANS: South Suburban College, 15800 S. State St., South Holland, provides current veteran students and prospective veteran students with information including veterans’ benefits, financial aid and SSC programs and services.
The Illinois Mobile Veteran Center, which is the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ latest effort to reach underserved veteran populations, can access VA records on a secure system and offer referrals.
The event kicks off at 9 a.m. with a keynote address from Illinois veteran and state Sen. Michael Hastings (D-Orland Hills) in the Performing Arts Center.
Cook County Recorder of Deeds, Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital, a U.S. Army recruiter from South Holland, Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ Department of Employment Security, Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legions, and Star Truck Driving School are slated to share information from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the atrium.
