Friends of the Soldiers Home has been sending volunteers to the Armed Forces Retirement Home’s monthly Happy Hour event for about seven years now, and on the evening of Aug. 27 we were privileged to have a group of five from the community participate in the Home’s special activity. FOSH volunteers had a wonderful time with residents as they hung out on the roof of the Scott Building and enjoyed the cool breeze. Corn Hole was the game of the night, as team after team worked to win the prize. There were also those who just relaxed and enjoyed drinks, snacks and conversation. What’s next? Be sure to join FOSH for Saloon Night at the Home on Tuesday, Sept. 3, as local talent Herb Scott supplies jazz with his fabulous saxophone. To volunteer, write Lori Lincoln at volunteerfriendsofsoldiers(at)gmail(dot)com.
