Rotary Veterans Initiative Golf Tournament

The Rotary Veterans Initiative, led by members of the Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg North and the Rotary Club of Carlisle, is holding a golf tournament on Friday, July 28th at the Carlisle Barracks Golf Club. Get a team together and come support education and training opportunities for our veterans. Lunch is served at noon followed by a shotgun start at 1:00 pm.

 

Formerly Helping a Hero, Central PA, the Rotary Veterans Initiative aims to help military veterans succeed by supporting their education, training, and job search opportunities. RVI assists veterans with college and training scholarships, vouchers for textbooks and electronic devices, and mentoring. RVI also plans to cover certification fees for veterans and to build partnerships with business incubators to enhance opportunities for education and innovation.

 

This fall, with support from RVI, Employment Skills Center will offer a new Certified Logistics Training Program to provide logistics training and certification to qualified veterans. We are proud to partner with RVI and encourage you to participate in what will be a day of fun for a great cause.
