Two Soldiers Home residents, Ms. Bradford and Mr. Coleman, continued their Jingo winning streak with the assistance of Friends volunteers Ada Loo and Eric Schaefer at this month’s get together. This is nothing new; Ms. Bradford and Mr. Coleman sat at the same table together and swept last month’s Jingo, too! The Thanksgiving- and Christmas-themed Jingo games on Nov. 13 marked the last time Friends of the Soldiers Home and residents will get together for the activity until 2015. But the year was ended on the right note, with a dozen Friends partnering with residents for a great time! It was the 33rd time Friends and residents got together for Jingo games since Friends was founded in November 2011.
