Kent County Veterans Services offers “Life Reimagined” workshop 


The Kent County Department of Veterans Services provides assistance to more veterans and their families every day, getting them the benefits they have earned. Many veterans may not know all of the benefits available to them. The “Life Reimagined Checkup” may help those families as they prepare or settle into retirement.

The Kent County Department of Veterans Services will host a workshop for veterans and their families in Grand Rapids on Friday, September 9, 2016, from 3-5 p.m., at the Kent County Veterans Services Office, 836 Fuller Ave. NE. The “Life Reimagined Checkup” will help participants understand where they are in life and what their next move could be.

“Retirement should be an exciting time for veterans and their families, but often, there are so many unanswered questions,” said Carrie Anderson, Manager of Kent County Veterans Services.  “We hope to take some of the guesswork and anxiety out of the process for those who served.”

Participants will build connections within their community, discuss the obstacles they face and learn how they can overcome challenges. Whether their goals are work, family, or health related, participants will discover new methods to reach their aspirations, all during this 2-hour session. The presentation is a combined effort of the Veterans Services Office, the Grand Rapids Community Foundation Encore Program and AARP.

Space is limited and participants must register in advance: https://lifereimagined.aarp.org/events/detail/42363 or call Veterans Services at (616) 632-5722.
