If you enjoyed last year’s public events at the Old Soldiers’ Home, you have another opportunity this Saturday, May 4th. According to the Friends of the Soldiers Home Website, they have organized an afternoon of games, food, and music. It is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., on the lower grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Rock Creek Church Rd & Randolph St., NW, Washington, D.C.

The event is FREE, rain or shine. There is a $5 charge per car for those who drive in.

In addition to the fun and games, Brookland landscape architect Mary Pat Rowan will lead a 60-minute nature walk starting at 2 p.m. The walk will begin and end at the gazebo next to the pond at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

It certainly looks like a great way to enjoy the weekend. It’s also great to see everything that the Friends of the Soldiers Home, partnering with the Armed Forces Retirement Home, has been able to accomplish in the past year.
