The ‘Fat Tuesday’ version of Saloon Night With Friends was a rip-roaring success March 5th. Friends of the Soldiers Home brought in The Herb Scott Trio with sizzling jazz to warm up the Defender’s Inn on a chilly night at the Armed Forces Retirement Home campus in Washington. Seven Friends volunteers seemed to have as much fun as the 50 or so residents who participated. The fun wasn’t over until Herb’s trio had the ‘saints marching in.’ Even after the music stopped, veterans lingered at Defender’s, because the fun didn’t need to end so soon. The next April Fools-version of Saloon Night is, no kidding, on April 1. We can’t wait!
