VA open house at new location

Veterans looking to take advantage of the services provided by the Lycoming County Office of Veterans Affairs now can do so at the office’s new location.

Located on the fourth floor in its own suite at the Executive Plaza, 330 Pine St., Suite 401, the office no longer shares space with the human resources department, where veterans had to pass through before arriving at veterans affairs.

“Now, when veterans come in, they arrive right in our office,” said George Heiges, director of the local office. “It’s much more accessible now. Even though it’s on the fourth floor, it’s own our separate entity.”

The Lycoming County Office of Veterans Affairs will hold an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. on May 23 to showcase the new location. Heiges said attendees can expect snacks and refreshments as well as personal memorabilia that was donated.
