The James K. Polk Chapter, NSDAR, recently organized a volunteer training day for new volunteers for the new Community Based VA Clinic in Mena. The William Harrison Earp Chapter of the UDC, and the Happiness Club of the Polk County EHC were also among the groups represented at this training. The training was conducted by Mr. Micheal Dobbs of Little Rock. He is the chief of volunteer training for the local area. Mr. Dobbs stated he would be willing to return to the area to conduct more training if a group of 10 or more were interested in volunteering for the VA clinic and veterans. You can reach Mr. Dobbs by calling 501-257-3293.
This training is required for anyone who is interested in volunteering for the VA and veterans. Participants pointed out that if you are a bus driver for the VA, you have already received the training.
