Resident telling jokes.

Resident telling jokes.

We had plenty of residents join us for Happy Hour on Tuesday night, Sept. 30. Residents enjoyed the company of other residents and Friends of the Soldiers Home volunteers — and they even enjoyed some bad jokes!  Everyone welcomed Glenn Hamilton – enjoying his first day at the Armed Forces Retirement Home with his daughter and son-in-law. As the photos show below, resident Ron decided to show us his Shrek imitation; one resident took the mike and told some of his own jokes; and new resident Glenn learned just what happens at Happy Hour. The Friends and residents also enjoyed the help of a wonderful set of volunteers from Catholic University. Come and join us this fall as we move inside for Happy Hour. We meet the last Tuesday of every month – serving residents, enjoying conversation and welcoming new residents. Our next Happy Hour will be right before Halloween on Oct. 28 — might be spoooooky. Write Lori Lincoln at volunteerfriendsofsoldiers (at) gmail.com if you would like to help!
