February 22, 2015 – 4th Floor: A soup and sandwich kind of day…

2015Happy New Year

After taking a break, our 2015 luncheons have begun!

We had quilts from Bayside Quilters and Katie made up snack bags to give out to our guests. Earlier in the week Gladys, Bob and I met up to give them the supply boxes. They were ready to roll!

Saturday's snow
We were keeping our fingers crossed the snow and ice that came in on Saturday would melt before they headed out Sunday morning. Thankfully, Gladys and Bob’s street was plowed and the roads in Katie’s neck of the woods were clear by the time they were ready to leave.

Ham and turkey sandwiches. It was a “soup and sandwich” kind of day.
NIftie-giftie table
Niftie-giftie table.  Lots of Bayside Quilters quilts were given out. The Camp Snoop popcorn baskets were full of snacks and had movies in them. Gladys tried one of Katie’s brownies and said they were delicious. We are very grateful to our luncheon supporters.

These days there are very few combat-wounded on the floor.  Many of the patients we serve are active duty service members or their dependents, there for surgeries, or were injured in accidents, or are ill. Sometimes there may be “re-admits”, combat patients who have moved over to Building 62 into their own apartments as out-patients, and come back to the 4th floor as an in-patient for follow-up surgeries for a short period of time.

Gladys said,

“Our luncheon was, as always, well received, and we were warmly thanked by those who attended.”

This month’s luncheon photo credit goes to Gladys. Thank you for sharing them, Gladys.

Gladys, Bob, and Katie – Job Well Done!  Thank You!

The wars may be over, but troops are still in harm’s way all over the world.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
