We will post details of Sunday Oct. 5 Fall Fun Fest activities through the month so watch this space. The number of different activities at the all-day event is almost staggering! We begin with golf. There will be two golf tournaments that day — one for community participation at 9 a.m. and one for active military, retirees and Wounded Warriors at 1:30 p.m. See details on flyers below. Both events will raise money for the Armed Forces Retirement Home Resident Fund. This is a fund that supports activities for residents who live at the Home. Remember that besides golf, the day will feature many other activities, including a community walk, Oktoberfest band and dancers, food, drink, military displays, Lincoln’s Cottage activities, car show, and so on. This is the most extensive event open to the public at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in D.C. that I can recall. Mark your calendars and get ready to have fun! Stay tuned for more information.
