The City of Newton is proud to announce the relocation of our first Tuesday of the month Veterans Service Center event to 345 Walnut Street in Newtonville. This new location is accessible via public transportation and is in the heart of one of Newton's thriving village centers. The next Veteran's Open House will be Tuesday, October 7th from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm.

We are pleased to announce that October's guest speaker will be Bob Halloran, a sports reporter for WCVB-TV Channel 5.  Prior to Bob's discussion at 6:30 p.m., we will be hosting a "Veterans Jam Session" thanks to Berklee College of Music. Whether you have never played guitar or have prior experience, Berklee College of Music staff and students will be on hand to teach and play guitar with veterans.
