Cortage from past Family Day.

Cortage from past Family Day.

President Lincoln’s Cottage will again host Family day on Saturday, Sept. 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Cottage grounds at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

The free event includes a petting zoo, Civil War re-enactors, live music, food,arts and crafts, and a chance to climb to the top of the Sherman Tower. Friends of the Soldiers Home will again host a crafts table to support this event as we did last year. If you would like to be help, write volunteerfriendsofsoldiers (at) gmail.com.

We are grateful how the Home and the Cottage provide such enriching experiences for the D.C. region! For more information about the event, seehttp://conta.cc/15Qi9zD
