|Once having gotten everyone off the buses and seated in the hall, Chet Teater Welcomed the
Vets to the Post. Arrangements were made for those in Electric Wheel chairs to set at the tables.
Each Vet was able to have a volunteer assist them if they so desired. There were also volunteers
standing by to get drinks or other refreshments for them
|For every Bingo, that person picked an envelope. Each envelope contained money of various
denominations. As Bingo progressed the search for the right envelope became more intense, as one
contained $50. It put a lot of smiles on everyone's faces.
|The main course for the Vets was our famous Fish Fry. They greatly
appreciated their meal with Pizza from Three Brothers Pizza in Middleville.
|The ALR provided a sack ditty bag with socks, soap, candy,
deck of playing cards, ink pen, notepad and other toiletries.
|At 4:30 it was time to go. The Vets were
helped by the volunteers to get ready
|All in all everyone had a great time and it seems as though the Volunteer's may have
had a better time than the Vets. Much discussion took place in the Lounge following
the Veterans departure.
