WOMEN'S VETERAN RETREAT IN SEPTEMBER
Southwest Florida Blue Star Mothers FL4 is assisting with the Women’s Veterans Retreat being held September 10-13, 2015.
Georgie Alfano-Cronk, Chair, Women’s Veteran Committee is holding the 2nd Annual Female Veterans Retreat for our wounded female warriors in Parrish, Florida this year.
The Women’s Veterans Retreat is being sponsored by Goodwill Manasota, Southwest Florida Blue Star Mothers FL4, and Sarasota County Veterans Commission (Women’s Veterans Committee).
This year’s retreat we have 25 veterans that we will able to bless with a homemade quilt or afghan.
Our Blue Star Mother's have been collecting quilts and afghans during the summer. Our chapter received beautiful quilts that were donated by Siesta Key Chapel and Bahia Vista Mennonite Church, beautiful quilts from Barbara at Sew Easy, and gorgeous afghans donated by BJ & the St. David Knitters.
We can't thank you enough for your caring hearts, your time and talent to help us come together and make these wounded warriors feel loved.
