Dear Oregon Sisters in Arms:
Thank you for attending or supporting in spirit the 16 August 2019 Oregon National Guard Sisters in Arms inauguration event held at the General White Building, 230 Geer Drive NE, Salem, OR. The guest speaker was Brigadier General Donna M. Prigmore which gave us wonderful jewels of wisdom. Her reading list and many photos have been posted to our website and Facebook page. Your support and attendance was greatly appreciated and made this event excellent. Your initial feedback has been heard and what Women are seeking for the Sisters in Arms is: community events, conferences, fitness events, and relevant professional material we can collaborate on through our growing mentorship development. We have attached this initial feedback along with a resource flyer for your viewing. We look forward to you getting involved at an upcoming Sisters in Arms event!
