|Subject:||State Veterans' Home Week - June 11-17, 2017|
|Please join us in co-sponsoring a resolution designating the week of June 11 to 17, 2017, as “State Veterans’ Homes Week” in Pennsylvania.
This Resolution is designed to encourage citizens to visit the American heroes currently being cared for in one of the state’s six veterans’ homes; thank them for their sacrifices and service; and thank the staff and volunteers who provide exceptional care every day. For more than a century, the Commonwealth has tended to the needs of aging, ill and injured veterans in these state-supported homes. Under the auspices of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, the staff provides personal care, skilled nursing care, domiciliary care and dementia care to more than 1,500 veterans and their spouses, in Erie, Hollidaysburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Scranton, and Spring City.
Attached is a listing of events for the week of June 11-17 at our Veterans Homes.
In 2016, SR 386 was sponsored by Senators Vulakovich, Costa, Aument, Baker, Brewster, Brooks, Dinniman, Farnese, Folmer, Fontana, Greenleaf, Hughes, Hutchinson, Mensch, Rafferty, Reschenthaler, Sabatina, Scarnati, Schwank, Scavello, Tartaglione, Teplitz, White, Wiley, and Yudichak.
