The Veterans Resource Event is one of a series of programs designed to support local veterans. On the Fourth of July, the city featured a Veterans Table for the day’s festivities along with offering free drinks and food to veterans.

Manchester featured a Veterans Booth at their annual fall festival, Homecoming. Active duty military members also receive free access to the Manchester Aquatic Center during its open season.
