Fairfax-Lee Chapter Holds Feb '18 Last Wednesday

Tuesday, March 06, 2018

The Chapter's monthly Last Wednesday mixer took place at Houlihan's in the Hilton Springfield on 28 Feb. As always, this well attended event provided a platform for networking, socializing, and decompressing after work with friends. Our guest speaker was Mrs. Karen Halverson, USN vet and Ambassador for the Women in Military Service for America (WIMSA). Mrs. Halverson gave an overview of the organization located at the ceremonial entrance to Arlington National Cemetery. WIMSA recognizes all women who have served in or with the United States Armed Forces—past, present and future; documents the experiences of these women and tells their stories of service, sacrifice and achievement; makes their contributions a visible part of our history; illustrates their contribution equal to that of men in defense of our nation; and serves as inspiration for others.

Other items of discussion included the upcoming Scholarship Fundraiser scheduled for 27 April at Top Golf in Kingstowne.
