FM #257 Dale Kurtz, Veterans Service Officer 4/27/20

Updated 2 months ago.

FM #257 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 257 in the series.

This session of the radio show shares my conversation with Franklin's Veteran Service Officer, Dale Kurtz. We held this conversation via virtual conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

Among the topics we covered in this time

- Assisting veterans with their benefits and programs at Federal, State and local level
- Norfolk County RSVP Rides for Veterans - could use volunteers
- Veterans Coffee Hour - going virtual after running for a year, now goes virtual in these pandemic times; May 6, 11:00 AM (bring your own coffee!)
- No Memorial Day breakfast, can’t be held during this time, hopefully to be rescheduled for some time later
- Memorial Day itself, no parade, ceremony smaller and virtual to acknowledge those who did pass with honor
- Food boxes still available for distribution - register with Dale

The recording runs approx. 30 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Dale.
