Let’s Support our Veterans on Memorial Day! (2017)
Let’s help brighten the Memorial Day holiday for some veterans at the Waco VA Hospital by donating individually wrapped snacks for the Bingo with Vets on May 29. We hear they especially like the small packages of peanut butter crackers, cookies, and cheese crackers. Of course, any kind of individual snack or candy will be much appreciated!
Please bring your donated items to the MCRW meeting at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 16. We’ll have a table especially reserved for the snacks inside our regular dining room at the Waco Hilton.
We also need volunteers to play Bingo with the vets at 1:30 p.m. on May 29 at the Waco VA Hospital, Building 6.
The Amvets Post 19, the Amvets Auxiliary, and the Sons of Amvets will be organizing the Bingo and also a ceremony at Rosemound Cemetery at 9:00 on the 29th. This year, the Young Marines will be placing flags on the veterans’ graves at Rosemound, so we will not be involved in that task.
