Party Held For Veterans At American Legion
On Sunday, July 11, members of the Daniel M. O’Connell Post of the American Legion and Ladies Auxiliary hosted 83 residents of the St. Albans Veteran Hospital to an “Everybody’s Birthday” party. Accompanied by their caregivers, the veterans were treated to dinner, entertainment, games of chance and presents donated by the community.
The Post holds semi-annual parties for veterans and planning is underway for the next one – a “Three Kings” party which is scheduled for January 2005. Individual and community organization donations of cash and new and clean used clothing are always needed. If you are interested in contributing or volunteering your talents on the day of the party, please leave a message for the Commander at 718-474-9303.
