jingo6It was 95 and steamy outside on Thursday Aug. 11, but inside the Scott Building at the Armed Forces Retirement Home-DC, it was cool and comfortable for games of Jingo. And a spirited set of games they were! AFRH staffer Amanda Jensema tested everyone on their knowledge of U.S. geography as part of the games. More than a few questions were met with periods of silence as everyone thought hard for the answer. But, whether the answers were right or wrong, smiles, laughter and fun were the end result. Thank you to Friends of the Soldiers Home volunteers Danielle, Rebekah, William, Stella, Kathleen, Terra and Tee for coming out and keeping company with fabulous men and women who have served our country so ably.
