We had information booths at the downtown Farmers Market, trying to educate the general public about our facility and our Veterans and their service to our country.
Our group enjoys camping and other outings as a way to grow friendships.
Poker Games!  Every Saturday morning you can find people playing Poker for fun and profit!
