Community members attend informative DAV transportation meeting

NORWICH – Twenty four people attended an informational meeting hosted by the Disabled American Veterans transportation service on Saturday at the Norwich Fire Station.

Due to a lack of volunteer drivers, the DAV transportation service had reduced its services to only three runs a week despite the need for runs every work day. But a recent upsurge in volunteer drivers has allowed the DAV transportation service to resume running five days a week, and an additional van may be added during the early part of the summer to do clinic runs to Binghamton and Bainbridge.

“You tell us when you want to work because it is a job let me tell you,” said DAV recruiter Bill Gleason during Saturday’s meeting. “I don’t want to scare anyone away, but I don’t want you to have culture shock either.”
