THANK YOU! Last time we held the event, all the Veterans (40 out or 125) received red carnations, making it easier to spot one another and connect. Folks came from five states and it was a wonderful fun and bonding time for all River House PA’s friends and Veterans. Since we as an organization have been working so closely with the Lebanon VA Hospital’ s Veterans in re-hab, with a van of 18 Veterans coming to us twice a month now (20 events a year), we do not have much on our schedule for the general public and friends of RH. But these Veterans in need are exactly the folks our organization aims to help. So this event on Veteran’s Day is a great opportunity to bring all our supporters together! See you on November 11th! Save a dance for me!
