About a dozen Friends of the Soldiers Home volunteers came to the bowling lanes at the Armed Forces Retirement Home-DC on June 20 to help elderly veterans have a great time. Volunteers helped residents use racks to line up the perfect shot or they helped steady the the veterans as they prepared to roll a ball. Bowling With Friends always happens the third Tuesday evening of the month. If you would like to join Friends of the Soldiers Home for an upcoming evening, write volunteerfriendsofsoldiers(at)gmail(dot)com. You won’t be sorry. Bowling is a great way to help elderly veterans — and have fun!
