Southern Dallas is no stranger to making history, but this year’s historical events are especially significant as the groundbreaking for the first Women Veterans’ Enterprise Center is accompanied by the first Women Veterans Day celebration, being held at the Veterans Resource Center (VRC) in southern Dallas (4900 South Lancaster Road).
This full day of activities, will kick-off at 8:00 a.m., with the official Groundbreaking Ceremony featuring an overview of the Center, testimonies from female Veteran business owners and statements of support from political, corporate and community leaders. The Center will host the Women Veteran and Small Business Luncheon highlighting their respective contributions to their industries and their communities. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. and the program will commence promptly at 12:00 p.m.
The day will end on a high note, with a Women Veterans Day Reception, featuring women Veteran and mainstream entertainers commemorating this first annual event in the State of Texas. Representative Neave and ten of her colleagues at the State Capitol sponsored HB 2698, which has officially passed the House and is awaiting a Senate vote. The Bill acknowledges the June 12, 1948, “Women’s Armed Services Integration Act,” which enabled women to serve as permanent, regular members of the Armed Forces. This day provides a dedicated time to educate, validate and celebrate the contribution of women Veterans in the State of Texas.
Our female Veterans have served our country with honor and now it’s time for us to serve them! You can be a part of this historic event, setting the stage for Women Veterans Day 2018, which will mark the 70th Anniversary of the, “Women’s Armed Services Integration Act.”
