New veterans chamber get a new local presence
A new business association catering to veterans will open an office in Cumberland County this afternoon.
To correspond with Veterans Day, the Pennsylvania Veterans Chamber of Commerce will hold a grand opening of its new office and Veterans Connection Center at 20 S. 36th St. in Hampden Township.
The event will run from 3 to 6 p.m. The group held a ribbon-cutting at the Capitol on Oct. 17 to signal the start of the organization.
The office will house the staff, a reading library and conference room to be used as a facility for day seminars and community event planning. The chamber offers individual and business memberships and is dedicated to networking businesses and individuals for the purpose of resourcing veterans.
