We had a great turnout for our Veterans Day lunch on Monday. We served over 50 veterans, and with their guests there were about 80 people. Thanks to all the veterans who came and let us honor them on their special day. Thanks to Hank Cramer and Rob Thram and Sue Sabin for the music, and John Fleming for being the emcee, and the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 120 for the colors.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who stepped in to help decorate, cook, serve and clean up. We are quite a team.
The Senior Center has been very busy with setting up the Christmas Sale room, planning for the Veterans Day meal, and keeping up with the rummage room donations. I think everyone has been doing double duty, and it won’t be slowing down until after Christmas. Then we can all take a deep breath and relax a little until spring.
The Christmas Sale starts Nov. 23. Decorations, trees, stands and gifts for the whole family will be available. New things will be put out daily, as room allows.
If anyone would like to send a Christmas card to a wounded veteran, here is an address: Recovering American Soldiers, in care of Walter Reed Medical Center, 6900 Georgia Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20307-5001.
