Friends of the Soldiers Home had a great time assisting Armed Forces Retirement Home-DC residents at their campus bowling alley on May 16. In the first photo, volunteer John helps to steady a resident as he takes his best roll. Having John in tow kind of cramps his style, but it enables him to continue bowling his own way – standing up, and rolling the ball himself. After his turn, he coaches the Friends volunteers! In the other photos, volunteer Brenda brings resident Herbie his ball as he maps out his strategy. Herbie’s system seems to work. That’s a good roll! Join us for FOSH bowling night, always the third Tuesday evening of the month.

Our next session will be June 20. Write volunteerfriendsofsoldiers(at)gmail(dot)com if you would like to help.
