The South Texas Veterans Health Care System (STVHCS - www.southtexas.va.org) is sponsoring the 23rd annual Salute to Women Veterans.
The event will be held from noon to 3 pm, Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts, 910 Main Street, in Kerrville.
Registration begins and exhibits open at noon. Cynthia Vahle, the STVHCS representative, will start the program at 1 pm. The Air Force Band of the West from Lackland Air Force Base will provide entertainment. Gifts will be awarded to the first 150 women veterans who register.
