AWVA hosts holiday potluck
The American Women Veterans’ Association of Douglas County invite women veterans to a Christmas potluck dinner meeting at 5 p.m. Thursday at the American Legion Post, 406 S.E. Oak St., Roseburg.
Turkey will be provided by the AWVA; attendees should call to confirm the side dishes they will bring. Canned food donations for United Community Action Network will be accepted.
The group will nominate officers for 2014. Candidates should call to confirm their intent. Plans will be finalized for celebrating the holidays with women veterans hospitalized at the VA Roseburg Healthcare System.
AWVA’s Color Guard is also active. It served at the Quarterly Memorial Service at the Roseburg National Cemetery Annex in November and conducted the Nov. 22 flag ceremony for the opening of Eagle Landing, where some women veterans will be living.
