Women veterans were honored March 10 and 11, 2017 during the second annual “She Served” event. It was put on by a new veterans organization to Siskiyou County, Siskiyou Women Veterans Group, and sponsored by Siskiyou County Veterans Leadership Council.
As stated by Robert Ballesteros in an email about the event, “To all our sister veterans out there we salute you and thank you for your service!”

Supervisor Michael Kobseff attended, and Sheriff Lopey read the proclamation signed by the Board of Supervisors. Guest speaker was active duty Air Force Capt. Konvalin.
“The women enjoyed a full day of pampering the next day as the event continued at the Mt Shasta Methodist church,” according Ballesteros. “Thanks to the many volunteers, service providers, organizations, and merchants who provided their services to make this event possible.”
