Congratulations To Our Long Term Shipmates
The Branch hosted bingo day at the Washington State Soldiers Home-October 29th, 2016
Thanks to our shipmates who came out to help make the quarterly bingo day fun for residents of the Soldiers Home. Lead by bingo caller extraordinaire Len the gang responded quickly to the call, “BINGO”, as the residents proudly announced their claims.
The Washington Soldiers Home and Colony, located on 181 acres in the beautiful Puyallup Valley near Orting, serves residents needing skilled-nursing care. Established in 1891, this was the first of three homes built for Washington state veterans. This is a heartwarming experience and you are encouraged to join us next time (TBA).
Next Bingo scheduled July 29th. Plan to come out for a fun time. Visit the Photo Gallery for additional photos.
So You Want One Of Those Neat FRA Hats...
By going to the MORE tool bar at the top of this page you can find your way to the hat order form. Click and follow the path. You will see a pop up box that ask if you want to open, click open. Another box might pop up, click allow. Word will open, before printing click enable editing on the top yellow tool bar. You are now ready to print.
Sorry for the extra steps...the company that makes the hats does not have its own web site so we are working with an old form.
