Friends of the Soldiers Home had a great Jingo night at the Home the evening of Thursday, March 14.  It was our first look at Scott Commons, our veteran friends’ new home.  The place was gorgeous and filled with homey comforts and amenities.  It will be wonderful to share this great space with them for years to come as we continue to volunteer and hopefully bring some fun and warmth and opportunities for games and gathering together.

There were several lucky winners in the game of geography Jingo in a beautiful new third-floor space with gorgeous views of two historic gems, Lincoln’s Cottage and the Sherman Building. But there were no luckier people than Friends of the Home, who got a chance to spend time with veterans and give something back to those who have given us so much.

We can’t wait to return when we help with Happy Hour on March 26th!
