The local Disabled American Veterans Chapter No. 234 is hosting a dedication ceremony for a new 15-passenger shuttle at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Stephenville Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall located at 810 East Airport Road.

The DAV Shuttle service has been working through the authority of the Central Texas VA Health Care System since 2005. Robin Haggard Ritchie has served as the VA shuttle coordinator/volunteer for the past seven years. She and the volunteer drivers have helped 2,000 local veterans travel to VA doctor appointments and hospital stays. 

A reception and refreshments will follow the dedication.
