|End Date:||Saturday, December 09, 2017||Ending Time:||02:00 PM|
|Description:||This will be our Christmas visit to the Thompson-Hood Veterans Home in Wilmore, KY. There are about 258 residents there of which about 17 are women. Everyone is welcome to go with us or meet us there. For many of the residents there we are some of the few visitors they see. Their families are dead or do not come to see them. One resident that we have come to love dearly told us at our Christmas visit last year that he dreamed of us coming to see him.|
Task Force Omega of KY will leave the Mt. Sterling, KY Days Inn parking lot at at 12:00 noon to ride/drive there. We will wait on Veterans Drive so we all will arrive at 2:00 pm at the veterans home. EVERYONE is welcome to go with us or meet us there TFO member or not.
We will have a list from the event coordinator Michelle Ewing and TFO will purchase some of the items they need, We will also have Christmas Cards many of which are hand made by school children and church congregations. Everyone will have cards to give to the residents and we ask that you spend at least 5 minutes with the residents when you give them their cards. Deadline for getting the Christmas Cards to us is November 27th.
Please go with us or meet us there. It will do you good and make a smile appear on a veterans' face at the veterans home.
After our visit to the Thompson-Hood Veterans Home (Wilmore, KY) everyone is welcome to join us for Christmas dinner at the best restaurant in Lexington. The address is:
Palmers Fresh Grill &Wine Bar
Lakeside at Lexington Green Mall
161 Lexington Green Circle
Lexington, KY 40503
This restaurant was voted 2016 the fourth best and fresh seafood in the state of KY. I will need a head count of who would like to join us for fellowship and a wonderful meal for the season of giving especially to our veterans! The menu of Palmers is vast and delicious!
Let Dan "Bigun" Hawkins know (270-860-9155 no text) or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are going to Palmers Fresh Grill &Wine Bar a week before we go if you can or in case you cannot please let me know as soon as we get to Wilmore when we meet in the community room there. I need to let the restaurant know how many to expect. So they can get ready for us
