Capital’s Veterans’ Club will hold the annual Veteran’s Day Luncheon on Wednesday, November 7th from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Walter J. Markiewicz Community Room at the 950 Main Street campus in Hartford.
Recognized will be Capital students with military service led by Club President Milgrid Guzman and Margaret Abraham, the retired veterans counselor who continues to volunteer in support of student veterans.
The program will include remarks by Dr. G. Duncan Harris, the college’s CEO , David Seder, the chairman of the college’s foundation, and Marsha Ball-Davis, the Dean of Student Affairs.
Hats, gloves, scarves and other in-kind donations will be accepted at the luncheon for needy veterans.
The Veterans Oasis center opened on the campus in the fall of 2015 . The OASIS — standing for Operation Support for Incoming Service members — stems from a 2008 initiative by the CT Department of Veterans Affairs to establish centers at colleges and universities for veterans. Capital has been recognized as a “Military Friendly School” for services and support for veterans.
