Happy Hour in August – what a wonderful time. Hot dogs, sodas, beer, and blue skies – what else could anyone ask for? Perhaps some great conversation with Friends of the Soldiers Home and the residents? We had that too. Everyone had a great evening Aug. 26 – with smiles on their faces, remarks about great hot dogs – and several new Friends who joined us for the first time and were delighted with the experience. Come and join us – we’d love to see you. To get on the Friends volunteer e-mail list, write volunteerfriendsofsoldiers(at)gmail(dot)com.
