WVN LogoThe MA Women Veterans’ Network (WVN) and Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology are hosting a Women Veterans’ Spring Fling on Saturday, March 29, 2014.

According to Viviana Marcotte, an Iraq War veteran and coordinator of the WVN for the Massachusetts Department of Veterans’ Services, Spring Fling will be an opportunity for Women Veterans to network with other female veterans and to “enjoy the beginning of spring with fellow sister veterans”

This year’s Fling will be one of the first WVN events that will cater to veterans and their children making it a family-friendly event. The Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology will have some of their Art Therapy majors present who have volunteered their time to play games and do crafts projects with the children. The day will include: door prizes, food, free parking, children activities, benefit information and a social hour. The social hour will have “Get to Know Each other” games and opportunities to make important connections regarding veteran’s benefits and resources.
