The public is invited to celebrate Social Work Month at the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center Friday. The program begins at noon in the facility’s auditorium on the second floor. Guest speaker is Mayor Wren Stratton.
A special part of the program will be a tribute to Ollie Woodard, a VA social worker who died in 2005 with 32 years of service. Stratton will present a proclamation naming March 14 as Ollie Woodard Day.
This year’s theme — Building on Strengths: Help Starts Here — focuses on the important strengths inherent in each individual, family and community.
After the program, social workers will be on hand to discuss the programs the VA has to offer.
