PORT ORCHARD — In honor of veterans activist and Veterans of Foreign Wars leader Mike Licari, who passed away May 1, Dr. Ron Schoepflin and his team of volunteers are preparing for their third dental outreach day Friday, Oct. 19.

Named the Mike Licari Veterans Service Day, the dental team will provide cleanings, exams and consultations donated or provided at low cost to veterans and their eligible family members. The activity will take place at Schoepflin Dental Excellence at 6500 SE Mile Hill Drive during the day.

According to Schoepflin’s office, there is still room on the schedule for veterans. To schedule, email vetsdental care@outlook.com or call the office at 360-871-2959.

Another event for veterans that Licari started — Bowling for Veterans — will take place on Sunday, Oct. 21 at Hi Joy Bowling in Port Orchard. It will run noon-4 p.m. that day.

It is the eighth annual fundraiser for VFW Post 2669 in Port Orchard. This family event will include bowling, raffles, silent auctions and support for veterans in need of holiday assistance.
