Spirits were high at our last Happy Hour at the Soldiers Home! We had a Catholic University student share a joke with us, and residents who clearly enjoyed the conversation, music, jokes and all the fun. Sometimes we dance at Happy Hour, and this time we did as resident Ray spun tunes from the Golden Era. Resident Chris was the big winner of the trivia contests. Nam Knights Capital Chapter as always supplied the bar — and they tended it. As usual the Nam Knights provided a lot of fun and companionship. The next Happy Hour is the evening of May 31.
