    Military families invited to pool

    Area military families are invited to a meet-and-greet pool party, from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 23 at White Pool in Rutland.

    The event ó hosted by the Rutland Regional Team of Operation: Military Kids, a University of Vermont Extension 4-H program ó will include swimming, games, dinner and a back-to-school-themed raffle.

    All military kids who sign up by Aug. 20 will receive a ďHero PackĒ, designed to help them stay connected with their parent during the current reintegration period. The backpacks are filled by nonmilitary youth and community groups with items such as a disposable camera, photo album and a written note of appreciation.

    To RSVP for this event, call Heather Fredritz at 345-8190. Anyone needing a disability-related accommodation to participate can call Stephanie Atwood at 656-0346 by Monday. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/OMKVermont.
