Greetings again from Hawk Hill!
We are excited to share that our next Entrepreneurship
Bootcamp for Veterans will take place in April. Our welcome ceremony will occur
on Sunday, 7 April at 11:45 AM. We have been displaced from the first floor in
Mandeville Hall, but are looking for a suitably representative alternate spot
(the rest of the Sunday activities for the program are in the same building, so
parking & directions remain the same.) Let’s hope for nice weather!
I hope you will be able to join us on 7 April. Thank you, as
always, for your continued support of our region’s veterans.
Hank Gillen, MBA &
Director, Office of
A Hero’s Welcome and the Warriors’ Watch Riders have been
invited by the Arcola Intermediate School to join them in honoring those who
have served and are currently serving in our military. A POW MIA Chair of
Honor will be dedicated at this ceremony.
Please join us as the students of Arcola say THANK YOU to our
local Veterans !
On Friday, February 8th at 8:15am, Arcola Intermediate School (4001-A
Eagleville Road, Eagleville, PA 19403) will be holding an assembly to recognize
those who serve/have served our country as members of the military.
The staff and
students will be dedicating a Chair
of Honor in the newly refurbished Arcola auditorium as part of
this program. A Chair of Honor is an unoccupied chair that is a memorial to all
the brave men and women who served in the military of this great nation, but
have not returned home to us. It symbolizes there will always be a seat
in Arcola awaiting their return.
Veterans and community
members are welcome to attend this event.
ALL VISITORS ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN IN AT THE ARCOLA MAIN OFFICE.
Prior to the event, we ask that you RSVP by calling the main office at

Dr. Mangano, Principal
A Hero’s Welcome,
We have received a welcome home request from a husband of a Sailor in Virginia Beach, VA who recently returned from her 3rd deployment! She has spent many months away from her children and her hubby wanted to do something special for his wife when she returned home. We have not been able to properly plan a welcome home since currently have no chapter in the Virginia Beach area but…that doesn’t mean it won’t still happen!!!
If you know of anyone in the Virginia Beach area that would be interested in helping us plan a welcome home for this Sailor, please contact me.
Our Hero is already home so this will be an easy mission to plan…
For the Troops,
A Hero’s Welcome
