Primrose residents enjoying the senior lunch at the Amvets Post 15 in Thornville

The residents at Primrose of Lancaster were invited to a free lunch for the seniors at the Amvets Post 15 in Thornville, where resident Tera was a member. Tera’s friend and fellow member had contacted us about the lunch and as soon as our bus pulled up, members of the Post were coming out to greet us and help us unload. One by one they took all of us in and we were escorted ahead of a line that was wrapped half way around the building.

We soon ate lunch which consisted of homemade chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, and green beans. There were also assorted pieces of cake on the tables for dessert. After lunch, everyone played bingo. Our gang played four games then it was time for us to head back to Lancaster. Again, the members helped us load up in the bus. They told us to come back to the next senior lunch in October. We said our goodbyes and then we were off. On the ride home, each resident was talking about what a wonderful time and experience they had. Later, after returning home, resident Fred remarked that he very much enjoyed himself and he felt very relaxed on the outing. The generosity of the Amvets Post 15 most definitely left a lasting impression on all of us that day.
