Practicing the Parade of the Flags
As the Wednesday Morning Meeting was going on this morning several volunteers were in the kitchen making ziti and garlic bread for dinner that was to follow. Here Della Orndorff, Betty Smith and Sandy DeVenny are assembling the Ziti. That’s provolone cheese being smothered in sour cream.
Elinor Kroll and Shirley Smith are wrapping the silverware for the event.
Char Leach made all the cakes for the Dinner and helped out tons in the kitchen.
Here I’m helping assemble the ziti.
Charlie and Nora Minor were on duty before and during the morning meeting. Then they both stayed around to help get the meal out on time. It was great to have Charlie with us to do some of the heavy lifting.
Lee Clement dropped in to see if we could use some help and was soon one of the crew!

IN HONOR OR
HB Hulsey, Winter Ranch Veterans Advocate
We were able to surprise HB this morning and present him with a plaque to thank him for his dedication and service to Winter Ranch and the veterans that he has assisted throughout his term as our Veterans’ Advocate.
We also surprised him with a Thank You Card Shower!
The kitchen crew worked through the Program, however, we did step out and watch the Video that ended the program.
TO “AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL” SUNG BY
The presentation featured many of our own veterans at Winter Ranch.
Then there was a short break while the volunteers were getting set up for the luncheon.
