Once each week, Friends of the Soldiers Home organizes volunteers for the Armed Forces Retirement Home-Washington. On Thursday, Aug. 10 we played Happy Birthday Jingo and recognized the many birthdays being celebrated during the month. With the exception of one game, the lively crew at the back table took home all the money! Jingo always happens the second Thursday evening of each month. Our next game is Sept. 14 — mark it on your calendar and join us! Drop a line to volunteerfriendsofsoldiers(at)gmail(dot)com.
