On Dec. 23, nine veterans from the Domiciliary volunteered as staff at the Christmas party for children who are less fortunate. The party was funded by the Promise Grant. The veterans were of great assistance and enjoyed themselves.


To thank them for their volunteer work, the nine veterans along with their tech and driver were treated to a dinner at a local restaurant. Three Elks accompanied them: Patty Jankiewicz, Veterans Chairman; Patty Volpe, Promise program manager; and Rita Smith, grant coordinator.
