Recognizing veterans | Snapshot – Chico Enterprise-Record

Seen from left to right are The Stage Whispers, consisting of Gerald Thomson, Paul Wrona, Julia Thomson and Kellen Staub with host Linda Watkins-Bennett, seated, during the Women Veterans Recognition Day celebration on Saturday, June 8, 2024. The event commemorates the Women’s Armed Forces Integration Act, signed on June 12, 1948. The free community event was open to all and honored our local women veterans. Gift bags were given to the female veterans in attendance and everyone was treated to free Shubert ice cream while listening to the speech from three local female veterans. Sponsoring groups included VFW Post 1555, Chico Chapter DAR, Northstate Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Newton Bracewell Chico Funeral Home, where the event was held. VA Sacramento, Women’s Health Program, provided valuable resources.
