To Be of Service
** SPECIAL EVENT!!  Thursday, March 12 at 12:00 p.m.

Special Guest:
J. Eric Ferranti.  Pennsylvania training advisor / America's Vet Dogs . Please join us at the Dietrich Theater for a special showing of the feature-length documentary To Be of Service. This film explores the remarkable life changes resulting from the introduction of trained service dogs into the lives of military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Many veterans' experience of returning home is wrought with depression and a wrenching disconnect from the world they once knew. For the lucky ones who are paired with a service dog, the unconditional love and support offered by these highly trained canines become the bedrock for them to re-engage with the outside world and to learn to feel again.  Prior to the film’s showing,  you will have the opportunity to meet two service dogs and Eric Ferranti will tell us about America’s Vet Dogs mission.  After the film, Eric will remain for a Q & A session.   America’s Vet Dogs may be best known for training Sully, former service dog to President George H.W. Bush during the last six months of his life. Call the Dietrich at 570-836-1022 ext. 3 for more information.

not rated, 88 minutes, in English, Directed by: Josh Aronson
