The Honoring Women Veterans Celebration for this year, though not our full-blown event as in years past before COVID-19, will be bigger than last year. Plans are already underway for a more involved in-person event for 2022, should circumstances allow.
We will still have the wonderful video provided this year by the Marketing Office with highlights from Honoring Women Veterans events from past years, but we have also added a flag display on the front drive and holiday card project.
The cards will be in kits this year for those who wish to participate. The kits will be available to be picked up at the Honoring Women Veterans table on the 1st floor Cate Center lobby. Participants can write and decorate the cards, and bring them back to the Student Leadership and Service (SLS) Office in the Cate Center before Thanksgiving. Instructions will be available upon pick up. Meredith’s Service Scholars will be helping to distribute the kits this year to student organizations. Once the kits are collected, the cards will be sent to Mission Holiday Cards, which will forward them to troops serving overseas.
Please help us to honor all U.S. military veterans, and especially women veterans, on Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11, 2021, and always.
