Sen. Hune sponsors Women Supporting Women Veterans event

LANSING —Sen. Joe Hune is proud to sponsor the Women Supporting Women Veterans (WSWV) of Livingston, Washtenaw, Oakland, Ingham and Shiawassee counties event on Saturday, April 21.

The event, which is free to veterans, is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Hartland Educational Support Service Center, located at 9525 Highland Road (M-59) in Hartland.

“More than ever before, brave American women are serving their country and seeing combat,” said Hune, R-Hamburg Township. “I’m glad to join forces with the Women Supporting Women Veterans group to help provide this ‘day of caring.’ I hope women veterans from across the 22nd Senate District will take advantage of this event and attend.”

Speakers and supporters include: Hune, Congressman Mike Rogers, Jon King of WHMI, and Brig. General Carol Ann Fausone (ret.).

Workshop topics at the event include mental health/justice outreach, housing/homeless program and eligibility/benefits.

The “day of caring” will also feature a vendor fair with more than 15 local vendors, a free lunch and childcare for children three years of age and up with pre-registration. Prizes will be awarded throughout the day.

To pre-register or obtain more information, call Arlene Callaghan at (810) 599-6014 or email her at wswvets@gmail.com.

According to the association, the WSWV consists of women from all walks of life. Some members have served in the military; some have family members who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country; and others are citizens who support and honor the country’s servicemen and women.
