Your news: Hometown Hernando for May 1

On behalf of the Democratic Women's Club of Hernando County, I'd like to publicly thank Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis for the meet-and-greet opportunity and the warm welcome he extended to our distinguished guest speaker, retired National Guard Brig. Gen. Rosetta Y. Burke at our recent Veterans Among Us Female Warriors tribute.

The club would like to thank Springstead High School's ROTC unit, led by Col. Sheri Andino, for attending while on spring break and so elegantly presenting the colors.

We also thank Florida state chaplain Charles Haig for his inspiring invocation and Congressman Rich Nugent for the flag and certificate confirming the flag was flown over our nation's Capitol. We plan to display them at our general meeting May 10 and at our birthday celebration June 14.

We would like to thank the behind-the-scene helpers and, of course, all veterans for their commitment, service and sacrifice.

Beverly Brown

Democratic Women's Club president
