AWVA elects new officers
The American Women Veterans’ Association will elect officers at its meeting from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the American Legion Post, 406 S.E. Oak St., Roseburg.
Women veterans from all branches of the services are encouraged to attend, meet other women veterans, and learn what the AWVA is planning for the coming year.
The group’s last 2013 activity was spreading Christmas cheer to women veterans who were hospitalized or in care facilities in Roseburg. AWVA members decorated small tinsel trees and assembled gift bags containing personal items, then delivered the gifts and sang the patient’s favorite carols. Four of the women visited are veterans of World War II.
