HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE POST LATELY?? 

IF NOT, YOU ARE MISSING SOME GREAT EVENTS

AND ENTERTAINMENT!

 

Visit a Veteran in a nursing home

Every Tuesday in May  at 5:15

3rd, 10th, 17th,  24th  & 31st

     Come join Al Bledsoe in visits to our brothers and sisters who are in nursing homes in and around Richmond.

     Just think what seeing a friendly face could mean to some of the Veterans who don’t have any family in the area visiting them or even some of them that do have family.

     Check out the board at the Post to see how many are in nursing homes and may never get to go home again.

     Think about how you might feel if you were laying there in a bed all day with no one to talk to that you have known outside the nursing home!

let's make a difference!
