Two great events — the bike race at the Soldiers Home is ON this coming Sunday now that the government shutdown has ended. Follow that with our fundraiser next Wednesday evening at DC Reynolds!

Full slate of bike races goes from 8:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. on the southwest corner of the Armed Forces Retirement Home campus. Enter through main gate at Upshur and Rock Creek Church Road. Free event, food and drink available. Friends of the Soldiers Home will honor some Home residents during the afternoon award ceremonies. DCMTB, which puts on the race, are major supporters of the Friends, so come on out!

Then on Wednesday, Oct. 23, between 6-9pm go to DC Reynolds, 3628 Georgia Ave., D.C. for our Friends Fall Fundraiser, $10 per person suggested donation.
