Dear fellow female veterans:

First, we’d like to thank you for your courage and service to our country.

We are a growing group of like-minded female veterans representing every branch of the U.S. armed forces through all wars and conflicts going back to WWII.

As we gather together, we discuss issues that concern us, as well as develop camaraderie. We meet monthly at 1 p.m. on the second Thursday at the Lecanto Resource Center off of County Road 491 on West Marc Knighton Court (same building of the VA clinic). The address is 2804 W. Marc Knighton Ct., Lecanto.

If you are interested in attending, call Carole 352-270-9156.

If unable to make the meetings, you can choose to supply your contact information and sign up to receive monthly meeting minutes and event calendars through our web page at

Your participation and input are imperative for our success.

Our current project is getting a Female Veterans Monument to be erected in Old Homosassa. We have the land, the design and 100 percent approval of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners. Now we need the money. We need everyone’s help with fundraising, grant writing and donations.

If you would like one of us to speak to your group about Female Veterans Network and the monument, call Cynthia at 352-628-6481. Please help spread the word.

We are hoping we hear from the 1,500+ female veterans living in Citrus County, those serving and supporters everywhere.
