Seven Friends volunteers served snacks and drinks and visited with residents at the monthly Saloon Night held on August 6th. Then on Thursday, August 8th, nine volunteers assisted veterans with another of our three monthly events to connect the Home and the community, Jingo Night. The volunteers helped residents play the game, which is like bingo, but with a trivia question. For instance, Miss Margaret Tuck on her own can’t hear the jingo calls. But with a volunteer at her side, she not only played the game vigorously, but won twice! If you want to join us for our next event, Happy Hour, on Aug. 27, write volunteerfriendsofsoldiers (at) gmail (dot) com.
