We had a great Happy Hour the evening of Tuesday, July 30, at the Armed Forces Retirement Home. This was the 10th consecutive monthly Happy Hour staffed by Friends of the Soldiers Home since we adopted the event last year! Thanks to volunteers Mary, Steve, Lori, Sandy, Alexis, Mary Anne and Tommy, we assisted residents in getting to the event and then served icy cold beverages, a few slices of pizza and pleasant conversation to about 30 of them. Home staffer Carol Mitchell told a few corny jokes and awarded money prizes to residents sharp enough on their toes to quickly answer trivia questions. Resident piano player Ray played a few songs on the piano, and everyone had a relaxing evening eating, drinking and chatting.
Thanks again, everybody, for one more memorable evening with Friends of the Soldiers Home!
We have two more volunteer events next week. Write Mary Bucci at volunteerfriendsofsoldiers (at) gmail (dot) com to help out at Saloon Night With Friends, Tuesday, Aug. 6, 6-8pm, or Jingo Night, Thursday, Aug. 8, 6-8pm
