Annual Women Veterans Luncheon on Saturday, November 14 2015

For eighteen years, the Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project (WVHP) in the University Libraries at UNC Greensboro has recognized the contributions of women veterans with a November luncheon.

This year’s luncheon includes a dramatic production, written and performed by students in UNCG’s theatre program, based on the interviews in the WVHP collection, as well as an exhibit of uniforms and other selected items from the collection.

The purpose of the luncheon is threefold: to honor the service of women who served in the United States armed forces and the American Red Cross; to serve as an educational forum about women veterans; to engage the veteran community at UNCG and Greensboro; and to highlight the work of the WVHP and its ongoing oral history project.

An exhibit of military uniforms and other materials from the WVHP collection begins at 11:30 AM. The luncheon and program will begin at 12 PM. The event is open to the public.

Tickets are FREE for UNCG military affiliated students (veterans, reservists, active military), $14 for all other veterans and $18 for non-veterans. Table sponsorship opportunities to support student attendance and veterans with limited means will be available for $300.

Please make your luncheon reservations and table sponsorships by November 1.  For disability accommodations or other questions, or to make reservations, contact Beth Ann Koelsch at bakoelsc@uncg.edu or 336/334-5838.
