Veteran's Open House:  January 5, 2016

Mayor Setti Warren invites veterans to the monthly Veterans Service Center Open House from 5:30-7:30 p.m., on Tuesday, January 5, 2016, which will be held at the Veterans Service Center, 345 Walnut Street, Newtonville.

We have an exciting guest speaker for this event, Richard Johnson, who has been Curator of the Boston Sports Museum since 1982 and who has written several books about athletes, including a book about the Boston Braves and also, “The Players of Cooperstown.”  Dick will bring with him some very special items which are usually on display at the Museum which is located on the fifth and sixth floors of the TD Banknorth Garden.

We ask you to please R.S.V.P. for the event January 5, since Dick plans to bring something for each veteran to take home that night and he’d like an accurate count of how many people will be in the audience.  Please notify Director of Veterans’ Services Seth Bai if you plan to attend, by calling Seth at 617-796-1092 or by emailing  ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
