On Wednesday March 29, we held our Southern Muster & Mingle in Tipp City at the Tipp Center. We had dinner from City Barbeque, and we are so grateful for their continued partnership with us! The weather has begun to warm up, and getting a taste of summer with their pulled pork, smoked chicken, mac and cheese and green beans really hit the spot!
We had a good sized group gathered, and the room was filled with chatter and laughter as everyone enjoyed some socializing while we waited for Jim to speak. He shared about his life in the military and his commitment to serving those who also served once he got out of the military. He talked about his volunteer work at various museums and veteran service offices, and he shared a story or two that had been shared with him.
We then heard from a representative with Big Brothers and Big Sisters. He was passionate, encouraging our veterans to reach out and help develop children in their communities. They have a much larger need that they have volunteers to meet, so he asked everyone present to think about working with a child in need.
We are excited for next month’s Muster & Mingle, when we will be hosting 4 Paws for Ability, a service dog training facility in Xenia, OH. For more information on Muster & Mingle, as well as other places we will be in the community, check out our Upcoming Events page here!
