BIWABIK—Women Veterans Unite!, a retreat for women veterans, is scheduled for Friday, May 3, at 6 p.m. – Sunday, May 5, at Giants Ridge Recreation Area, located at 6325 Wynne Creek Dr. in Biwabik. The event will conclude at 12 p.m. on Sunday.
Women veterans of all branches and all ages are invited to share unique experiences, connect, discover individual strengths, explore personal goals while enjoy a day full of activities—lodge amenities, the scenic outdoors and pampering at the Laurentian Divide Salon & Spa.
The primary goal of the retreat is to build a network of women veterans living within the United Way of Northeastern Minnesota (UWNEMN), service territory.
The retreat also gives women veterans living in northeastern Minnesota, just outside the service territory, an opportunity to connect with other women veterans.
The retreat is free, with priority given to women veterans living within the UWNEMN service territory. If space is available, women veterans outside of the UWNEMN service area, but living in northeastern Minnesota, may still be able to attend for a nominal fee of $150.
Interested women veterans in northeastern Minnesota are encouraged to apply early. Space is limited.
