Female Veteran Network (FVN) recognized members for their work in making masks during the COVID-19 outbreak.
FVN’s Connie Quinten and Ada Fox, along with community helpers Char Fontaine, Lorraine Peritorie and Maybelle Pratt, cut out over 1000 masks. FVN’s Nancy Sigmon sewed them together.
Masks were given out for donations, which went toward fundraising for the female veterans memorial on the grounds of the Old County Courthouse Museum in downtown Inverness.
Fox was presented with a certificate for her work at the FVN and her work knitting hats and scarfs, which are given to underprivileged students in the Citrus County schools.
Sigmon was recognized for making masks and the red FVN uniform vests.
The monthly FVN meeting are on the second Thursday of every month at the Citrus County Resource Center, 2804 W. Marc Knighton Court in Lecanto.
