    Gold Star Wives is inviting you to Learn and Refresh Together - A GSW Member Orientation.

    Whether you think of yourself as a brand new member or an old timer who wants to learn about our organization, this Zoom event is for you.  

    Take a little overview of who we are, what we do, and what is available to you as a member. If you have questions, (and we know you do!) please send them to Barbara King via email  ahead of the meeting (hopefully by Oct. 21) so we can be sure to address them.  We also will have time for a Q & A after our presentation.  

    Meeting is planned for not more than an hour.  Grab a glass of wine or your favorite cuppa, kick back, and join us!  

    While you do not need to pre-register with Zoom, please send Barbara an email to let her know you will attend via email  

    Day: Tuesday Oct 27, 2020  Meeting will "open" 30 minutes prior for a meet and greet and to let you get settled.

    In preparation of the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, GSW would like to invite you to a very special presentation on the history and secrets of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  Gavin McIlvenna will do the  presentation for us.  Gavin is the President of the Association of the Honor Guard of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  I have heard him speak and  I know you will enjoy this one as much as I have! 

    We will also be learning what we can do all across the country to help in the year long preparation for the Centennial of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  You may want to gather your family to see this presentation!
