LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The sixth annual Lake-Mendocino Veteran Stand Down and Homeless Veteran Resource Fair is coming this month.
All Lake and Mendocino County veterans are encouraged to attend.
The stand down, organized by Lake County Vet Connect, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, and Thursday, Sept. 19 at the Lake County Fairgrounds, 401 Martin St., Lakeport.
A free lunch will be served to all attendants.
The stand down/resource fair is open to all veterans regardless of the era in which they served.
The stand down/resource fair event last year at the fairgrounds hosted more than 160 veterans and offered a variety of services, assistance and information provided by more than 30 agencies and organizations.
This year's stand down will offer access to on-site medical services, enrollment in healthcare and supplemental nutrition programs, as well as other programs relating to educational, employment, and food resource issues that are important to our veterans.
Numerous VA resources will be onsite in addition to other federal, state, county and community organizations offering programs and avenues of assistance.

Lake County Transit is providing complimentary bus rides to the stand down as well. Veterans can catch the bus at their local stop and will be dropped off at the fairgrounds stop. Riders will need to have a Veteran ID or DD214 to receive complimentary bus fare. Non-veteran riders are subject to regular fares.
Organizers are again seeking volunteers to assist with the event. Volunteers will assist in capacities including helping to set up and tear down the venue, staging and issuing materials and supplies to veterans, and preparing food.
