Friends of the Soldiers Home will host its first volunteer event of 2014 on Tuesday, Jan. 7, from 6pm to 8pm when the band Nobody’s Business entertains our veterans. The seven-piece band that plays funky blues, rock, soul, r&b and ‘a little country’ will kick start the monthly Saloon Night With Friends event that occurs exclusively for Home residents at the Defenders’ Inn on the Soldiers Home Washington, D.C. campus. Friends will follow up this activity with Jingo Night on Thursday, Jan. 9, from 6pm to 8pm. If you would like to volunteer at either of these events, drop a note to Mary Bucci at volunteerfriendsofsoldiers (at) gmail (dot) com. Friends did 40 volunteer events in 2013, and these are the first two for 2014, so come on board, it’s fun!
