Attention to Detail – MARCH 2017 Reminders, Events, and Community Participation


Shout out to our member Sabrina Harges who raised $260 for Carson Coupon Booklet Sales this month setting up in the Evergreen Park Carson Store by herself!

As you know March is one of our busiest Months – IT’S WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH! This is show and Tell for NWVU Women Veterans and also to support MISSION 100 Membership Recruitment Opportunities. Please check the website weekly for updated information on the attached events and others! Some require registration!

Our Goal and challenge is to make every effort to recruit 31 military/women veterans for the Month of March!

We will also be reaching out to inactive members to encourage the to return and show that commitment by paying partial or full membership dues or make a donation to further the efforts of the organization.


There will be a special prize for the member who achieves the highest recruitment number of members in the month of March. Eligibility for the prize is based on the new member’s completed membership application and their paid membership fee. This is inclusive of national memberships.
