“Christmas In July” Support the Troops Update

One of my favorite activities from last year was the Winnwood “Christmas In July” celebration.  Residents and staff came together and worked with “Soldiers’ Angels” to collect gifts and write cards to our troops stationed overseas during the holiday season.

Here are a few pictures of our party featuring the “Take 3 Trio” singing some of our favorite Andrews Sisters’ songs.

Recently, we received a few pictures of the troops opening their Christmas Stockings  & our own resident Betty R. received a letter back from a French Major that is stationed in Afghanistan.
