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!
