7-29-14eStory and Photos by Liz Cocke. 

Tuesday, July 29th, was a lovely evening – and the rooftop of the Scott Building was a great place to spend it – as a dozen Friends volunteers gathered with veterans of our country and residents of the Armed Forces Retirement Home-Washington. The rooftop terrace provided lovely breezes and views of the city; residents provided wonderful stories of all aspects of their life and service, and Friends of the Soldiers Home served drinks, engaged in conversation and told their own stories. And what lovely weather! Who would have dreamed of a breezy, almost cool evening in Washington the last week of July?! Come and join us the last Tuesday night every month for Happy Hour at the Soldiers Home. If you are interested, write Lori Lincoln at volunteerfriendsofsoldiers (at) gmail.com.
