We had the best Happy Hour in memory at the Armed Forces Retirement Home on March 26. More than a dozen Friends of the Soldiers Home volunteers were happy to assist wheelchair residents in getting to the event. Friends also served everybody cold beer, other drinks and snacks, and shared some smiles and conversation. Both assisted-living and independent-living residents attended in the community room in the brand new Scott Building. Everyone seemed like they had a really good time. Ray Anderson, as always, provided the musical entertainment. AFRH staff member Carol Mitchell told many jokes — some of them assuredly were bad on purpose, giving Carol the benefit of the doubt!
