Honor - Veterans Recognition Luncheon

Honor - Veterans Recognition Luncheon

Monday, April 17, 2023 (11:00 AM - 1:30 PM) (EDT)


Join us for the Wilkes-Barre Connect’s inaugural HONOR Veterans Recognition Luncheon that will take place on Monday, April 17th, 2023. In collaboration with the Allan P. Kirby Center for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, this event will aim to recognize the local veteran and veteran entrepreneur community. The luncheon will be a time to come together to celebrate the achievements of veteran entrepreneurs in the Wyoming Valley and foster a strong connection between the Northeastern Pennsylvania veteran network. This year's Keynote Speaker will be Major General (Ret.) John Gronski, who was raised right here in the heart of NEPA. Attendees can expect to enjoy a nice meal, honor those who have served our country, learn more about what this community offers for veterans, and connect with community leaders. During this event, we will also be awarding three veteran entrepreneurs from the Wyoming Valley region with grants to advance their business ventures.

The HONOR program is a core entrepreneurial offering through Wilkes-Barre Connect. This initiative is a partnership between Wilkes-Barre Connect and the Allan P. Kirby Center for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, which delivers a business provider network to veterans (and their spouses), to ensure they have access to the resources and mentorship services they need to grow or start a business in Northeastern Pennsylvania. HONOR allows local veterans to network with each other, create meaningful relationships with resource organizations, and explore options to become more acclimated with the business community through hosting connection-building events in collaboration with regional partners.
