11/7/15 Nursing home visits
Detachment 296 members , family, and friends joined together to visit our local veterans at their retirement communities. The first stop was to the Weston Senior Living Center. The staff held a meet and greet with their veterans and residents. After meeting with all in attendance the members present sang all of the branches anthems as well as other patriotic songs
Next we went to the Mosser Nursing Home, a frequent visit by our detachment. When we first arrived we toured the facility making sure to talk to the resident that were unable to get out of bed. During that time the staff was able to gather the veterans into their meeting room. Once there we spoke to those in attendance and sang song with them as well.
All in all it was a wonderful day that we were able to share with our retired veterans.
