Twin Towers United Methodist Church, 1411 Oak St., will host the sixth Women in Military History event at noon, Saturday, March 15. The celebration honors the military service of all women of all eras. An honor guard will welcome guests.

Delphine Metcalf-Foster, Disabled American Veterans’ third national junior vice commander and Major Esther C. Sablan, who commands the 129th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, 129th Rescue Wing at Moffett Field, will make presentations.

A complimentary luncheon for all women service members will follow the ceremony. Door prizes this year include a two-night stay at the Marines’ Memorial Club and a $50 gift certificate to the restaurant there.

For the first time two additional congregations are assisting with planning and organizing the event: Faith Fellowship of San Leandro and its veterans’ ministry and a representative from St. Joseph Basilica here in Alameda.

Seating is limited; guests are asked to RSVP by March 7, by calling 748-6881 or sending an email to womeninmilitary@yahoo.com.
