VA 10-7-19

Cheyenne Veterans Affairs Health Care System will hold an all-encompassing Harvest Festival on Halloween, Thursday, Oct. 31, from 2:30 to 5 p.m. at the facility located at 2360 E. Pershing Blvd., in Cheyenne.

During the family event, children are encouraged to trick-or-treat from Veteran residents and staff, while adults can apply for VA jobs or learn about programs offered through the department of Veterans Affairs.  Veterans may also receive their flu vaccination.

According to Annette Chavez, event coordinator, there will be carnival games, a photo booth, job fair and concession stand where families can buy dinner before their night on the town.

“We wanted to create a safe place for families to come on Halloween while providing resources for our Veterans,” Chavez said.

Families wishing to attend should park on the east side of the facility near the Circle of Flags and enter through the Community Living Center.

Veterans wishing to apply for VA benefits or enroll in VA health care should bring a copy of their DD214 and two forms of identification.
