Upcoming events for Veterans involving staff/resources from Mann-Grandstaff VAMC:
VA's annual VA2K "Walk and Roll" at the VA medical center in Spokane is happening on May 16, 2018 - 11:00a.m. in front of the main hospital building with a kick-off, followed by 2k strolls around the campus with Veterans, staff, volunteers and guests. This is an event simultaneously occurring at VAMC's around the country and is intended to serve as both an employee wellness activity, and to raise donations for homeless Veterans. Donations of non-perishables, toiletries, personal hygiene items, and family care can all help and will be accepted at event registration, just outside the medical center's main entrance. Join us!!
Veterans are welcome to join leadership and staff from Spokane and Walla Walla VAMCs for a Veterans Town Hall meeting in Lewiston, ID on the evening of June 12, 2018 (6:30-8:00p.m.) at the Clearwater Casino & Resort. The event is part of a Veterans Benefits Claims program offered by the VBA, VA-Office of Tribal Government Relations, and the Nez Perce Tribe. This is an excellent opportunity for Veterans to learn more about filing disability claims, and to learn more about all of the benefits and services available to them as officials from VBA's Regional Offices in Boise, ID and Seattle, WA will be on hand. The two-day Claims event starts at Noon on June 12th, followed by the evening Veterans Town Hall meeting, and day-two of the claims event on the morning of June 13, 2018.
