Women Veterans Conference: Resilient Women Who Served – Rindge, NH
October 15, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm EDT
The Cathedral of the Pines will host a women veterans conference on Sunday, Oct. 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The title of the program is “Resilient Women Who Served: Our Stories.”
The day-long event will feature three women veterans who will share their experiences being in the military and how these experiences are different from their male counterparts.
Ramona Branch, cathedral incorporator and chair of the cathedral’s Women Veterans Committee, stated, “This is the first program ever developed by the Cathedral that brings forward what it is like for a woman to be in the military. We are fortunate to have three extraordinary military women leaders who have served our country around the world on our committee to help us plan and develop this program.”
The program will highlight three women veterans who will tell their unique stories about their military careers. Question-and-answer sessions will follow each speaker. Other speakers include Sen. Ruth Ward ( “What the State of New Hampshire is Doing to Honor Women Veterans”) and Kris Roberts, veteran service officer (“What Programs and Services areAvailable to Women Veterans”).
During the breaks, participants can take guided tours of the Women’s Bell Tower, the gardens or the museum. A 15- minute tai chi session will be offered.
Women veterans program managers Laura Caisse from the Manchester VA Hospital and Tina Kebalka of the White River unction VA Hospital will share with participants the latest programs and services offered to VA-enrolled women. They will have a conference table full of resources and information to enhance their presentations.
