Erie VA Medical Center new entrance open

Erie VA Medical Center new entrance open
The Erie VA Medical Center has a new entrance and exit. It is on East 38th Street with a red light. You can now exit the VA and make a left turn at the light (also a right). This has been a long work in progress.
Also, there are a lot of other things happening with the VA.
Produce Express will be there on the third Tuesday of the month, with fresh produce and grocery items, and available free to those who qualify.
It will take place in the back parking lot by the second-floor entrance.  Advance registration is required.
To see if you qualify for free food, call Sandra Luthringer at 814-860-2780.
