These men and women gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. We need to see that they are honored for that sacrifice. Please consider attending this event. 

BINGO at VA CLC
January 25
 

12:15 PM
Magnolia House Parking Lot 
 
We are once again going to serve the veterans at the Orlando VA Community Living Center at Lake Nona.  The veterans there love playing Bingo, so we have arranged to do that for them! We need at least 10 - 12 volunteers!
 
Services we provide will include getting the vets down to the hall, assisting them in playing the game, handing out prizes, and helping with refreshments. 
 
If you can make it, please let Mimi know by emailing her at mimibob@aol.com. 
 
These veterans have served their country well. Some cannot move the game pieces, others have trouble with comprehension, but they all love the interaction with volunteers and the attention that it gives them.  
Giving of our time is just one of the ways we can say, “Thank you!”

 

ADDED BONUS!! A TOUR OF THE HOSPITAL!!

 

If you would like a tour of the VA Hospital, this is your chance! Only 10 individuals will be permitted to attend the tour, so Mimi will limit this to the first 10 people who contact her. For the tour, you will need to be at the hospital by 11:30 AM, and it will last for one hour. You could then have lunch there and meet us for BINGO at 1:30!
