Help spread the word and invite Brainerd Lakes Area veterans to attend a special event, the Celebrate Veterans Career Exploration Event, from 4-7 p.m. Wednesday at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.

Veterans and their families will be able to learn about:

- Programs with Central Lakes College.
- Education and Career Planning Options.
- Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
- Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development programs.
- Minnesota Workforce Centers and Rural Minnesota CEP services.
- Veterans Affairs services.
There will be more than 90 exhibitor booths, representing Brainerd Lakes Area businesses, Veterans Affairs services, and Central Lakes College programs. Special guest speakers will include retired Maj. Gen. Rick Erlandson, Minnesota National Guard, and Spc. David Ferrian, Minnesota National Guard, and U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack, R-Minn. Activities include opportunities for career exploration, dinner in the cafeteria, children’s games and activities, and the celebration program.
Veterans and their families are encouraged to park in the college’s north parking lot. Look for signage directing you to event locations.
