Story by Mary Bucci

This month’s Jingo made for a really nice night for residents of the Armed Forces Retirement Home and Friends of the Soldiers Home. We had nine volunteers and 10 residents; a perfect match-up for the game.  Ms. Ida won the first four Jingo games; boy was she thrilled!  She calls volunteer John Lincoln her lucky young man when he pairs with her for this game. Mr. Tillery won next (and celebrated by singing a little Sinatra) and then Katie took it all home! Thanks to all our great volunteers who came out that night — our veteran friends appreciated it very much.
