I just had a lengthy and agonizing conversation with the Pennsylvania VFW State Officers.
I regret to inform you that we must cancel the Women Veteran’s Retreat that we rescheduled to July 31-August 2, 2020.
While certainly disappointing news, the Officers determined, and I agree, that the health, safety and well-being of our Veterans is our top priority, and we should not have this event in these uncertain times of the Covid-19 Virus.
In addition, our PA VFW Convention and the National VFW Convention have been canceled, and our program needs to follow these guidelines set forth by the higher offices.
Care Package Items collected and already donated to the “Operation Courage is Beautiful” will be forwarded to our female troops.
If you require assistance with any items you have, please contact me.
I have been asked to chair the Retreat in 2021, which I humbly accepted.
I will be in contact with you later this fall with information about the 2021 Retreat.
Your registration fee and paint class fee (if applicable) will be refunded.
Please be patient, as the refund comes from our VFW HQ, which is currently operating with very limited staff.
Best Wishes, Stay Safe and I hope to see you at future events.
VFW Dept. of PA Women Veterans Chairperson
