The first session of the Building the Bridge Series is scheduled for March 8, 2019. Enrollment will be available and onsite throughout the event. This event will be held at the U.S. Army Heritage Education Center (Carlisle PA), where we look forward to collaborating with key stakeholders from the Veteran community pertaining to supports and resources in Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry Counties.
