Lt. Col. Frank Roldan will present a program explaining the history of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP), which was formed in 1941 during WWII civil defense efforts, then chartered as the official civilian auxiliary to the U.S. Air Force. CAP functions today as a volunteer organization of nearly 60,000 citizens throughout the U.S. Its three primary missions are emergency services, cadet programs, and aerospace education. Martha Roldan will give examples of her work in geographic information science, providing maps for CAP search and rescue operations.

To make or cancel reservations, call or email Martha Roldan: 616.607.9205, keltyroldan@msn.com

Simply pay the $11.00 luncheon fee at the door.  Reservations are due by noon the Monday prior to the luncheon.  Please note: Counterpart is charged for each luncheon plate ordered. Once you make a reservation, payment for your meal is due even if you cannot attend the luncheon.

The Center for Women in Transition (CWIT) will also be collecting gently-used clothes and accessories for the Summer Clothing Drive.  CWIT will have a van at the entrance to the Holiday Inn to start collecting your donations at 11:30 am.  Receipts available on request.

Contributions to the clothing drives have been dropping off in recent years, so we urge you to take a good look in your closets and put those little-worn outfits to good use.  At CWIT, women can visit the “Wardrobe for Work” and are assisted in selecting several outfits that can be worn for interviews and work attire.  Your generosity could be the difference in some woman feeling more confident and getting a job.
