Job Service, Fort Peck Tribes Host Annual Veterans Stand Down


Veterans who are looking for help can go to the fourth annual Eastern Montana Veterans Stand Down, which will take place at the Cultural Center in Poplar Sept. 14.


The event, sponsored by five eastern Montana Job Service offices and the Fort Peck Tribes, will include a job fair with several employers who are looking to hire veterans and representatives who will be on hand to answer questions about a variety of services including vocational training, disabilities and health services.


The opening ceremony will take place at 9 a.m., following a breakfast and registration at 8 a.m.


Veterans can also bring their families. There will be activities for children provided by the Children’s Museum of Northeast Montana. There will also be music, door prizes and a ventriloquist. Lunch will be provided by the Fort Peck Tribes.


In a press release, Glasgow Job Services manager Shawn Andersyn said the Fort Peck Tribes and Job Service offices have been working hard to plan the event.


“We are looking forward to serving hundreds of veterans and their families,” Andersyn said.


Andersyn also said organizations who want to participate can still reserve a booth.


Free transportation will be provided from Sheridan and Valley counties. If anyone needs to reserve a ride, they can call 765-1018 from the Plentywood area and 228-8747 if they are coming from the Glasgow, Nashua or Frazer areas.


Anyone looking for information on how they can help at the event or just general information, can contact the Glasgow Job Service at 228-9369.
