SERVICE PROJECT: One of the goals this year for our State President, LuAnn Irby, was to raise awareness of the struggles that women face in the military. Keeping that in mind, we elected to recognize our military at Whiteman Air Force Base. We accepted monetary donations throughout the week for the “Warm Heart Fund.” This charitable organization uses the funds to help our military members at WAFB, and their families, in emergency situations.
