Press Release, GCASA

BATAVIA – Staff members at The Recovery Station are looking to make a “connection” with veterans and their families in the GLOW region.

Two events designed to show support for former and active military personnel and their families are scheduled at the social club at 5256 Clinton St. Rd. over the next week.

The public is invited today to join employees of The Recovery Station, a program of Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, on a Mission 22 Walk starting from the Ellicott Trail at the DeWitt Recreation Area on Cedar Street.

The walk is set for 2:30 p.m.  A cookout will follow at The Recovery Station.

“This is an opportunity to shine a light on statistics that show that 22 veterans take their lives by suicide every day,” said Harry Rascoe, director of The Recovery Station.

On Nov. 16, The Recovery Station will host a “Veteran Connection” gathering from 5 to 7 p.m.

Veterans from Genesee and surrounding counties will be able to network with various veteran and local service organizations and take a tour of the facility. This is being conducted in partnership with the GOW Pathway to Hope coalitions.
