Woman’s Club Aims to Encourage Support for Veterans

First published in the Oct. 29 print issue of the South Pasadena Review.

The South Pasadena Woman’s Club will welcome the president of the Vietnam Veterans of America – San Gabriel Valley chapter, Allan Stezler, and representatives of the Foundation for Women Warriors, as featured speakers at the Nov. 3 club meeting and luncheon at 10:30 a.m.
The presenters will describe how the organizations serve and support veterans.

The public is encouraged to attend and learn more about how South Pasadena residents can make a difference for veterans, and to meet and thank veterans who have served the country.
Local veterans attending the meeting will be introduced, including club member Joan Moffett, a WWII Army nurse, and Marshall St. John, a WWII Marine veteran and South Pasadena resident.
The Club has a long history of support for active military and veterans, including “Operation Cookie” which began in WWII for soldiers stationed around the world. The effort continues today for hospitalized and homeless veterans.
“If you have a family member or friend who has served in the military, please ask them to join us as well!” a club organizer said. “They will be welcomed as guests of the club for the program and luncheon.”
The meeting begins at 10:30 a.m., the program will follow at 11 a.m. and lunch will be served at noon. The cost to participate is $15. Reservations may be made by calling (626) 403-0477, or emailing spwc1899@aol.com.
