10th Annual West Metro Veterans Fair provides support for veterans on Oct. 5

Sept. 11, 2022 – The Elks Lodge and the City of Lakewood will partner once again to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the West Metro Veterans Fair with a record 50 organizations in attendance to serve military veterans and their families. The free event will be on Thursday, Oct. 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lakewood Elks Lodge #1777, 1455 Newland St.

Recognizing all branches of the armed forces, the fair provides resources and information for anyone who has served in the military and their families to learn about benefits, counseling, employment, health care and housing options. Support kits will also be available for unhoused veterans.

“I am proud to be a small part of the 10th annual West Metro Veterans Fair, an important event which prides itself on connecting veterans from across the metro area with the many organizations with missions to support and serve veterans,” said Master of Ceremonies Chris Hoeh, who is a United States Army Veteran and sergeant with the Lakewood Police Department.

Flu shots will be available for veterans at no cost. There will also be opportunities for one-on-one discussions with exhibitors at the fair and a free barbecue for all to enjoy.
