All veterans, active-duty military, members of the National Guard and Reserves, and their family members are invited to the 2014 Orange County Veterans Spring Picnic and Resource Fair on Saturday, May 10.

All veterans, military personnel and their families are invited to relax and enjoy the free picnic-style family barbecue and take advantage of information on a wide variety of veterans’ benefits and concerns from participating government agencies and support groups.

The picnic, hosted by the County Executive’s Office, Orange County Veterans Service Agency, and the Orange County Veterans Coalition, will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Thomas Bull Memorial Park, Route 416, Hamptonburgh, in the Day Camp Pavilion.

“Our county’s veterans have given so much to preserve our way of life, and this is one more way we can show our appreciation,” said County Executive Steve Neuhaus. “It is also a wonderful opportunity to meet our new Veterans Service Agency Director Christian Farrell, and former director Tony Zippo will also be on hand to visit with his many friends and colleagues.”

For more information about the 2014 Orange County Veterans Spring Picnic and Resource Fair, call 291-2469.
