Veterans Oasis To Open At Housatonic Community College

Safe, Social Environment for Student Veterans
Grand Opening October 13, 2010, 11:30 a.m.

BRIDGEPORT - Housatonic Community College October 13 will formally open a new veterans center for HCC student veterans. The event will be held at 11.30 a.m.  in Room B-102 in Lafayette Hall at the college. "We have created a 'safe environment' where our veterans may socialize, share their war experiences, their current struggles, and plan their futures to help ease their reentry into community civilian life" said Jaclyn Rothenberg,  Housatonic Veterans OASIS Co- Chair.  Both past and recent Veterans are welcome." The furnishing of the HCC Veterans room resulted from the collaborative efforts of the General Federation of Women's Clubs/CT ( GFWC/CT), including Fairfield, Milford, Stratford, and Trumbull Women's clubs. Speakers at the event will include HCC President Anita Gliniecki, GFWC/CT State President JoAnn Calnen, and HCC Veterans Affairs Officer Ernest Johnson.
