It is with regret we announce the end of a House tradition. Last year was the last Harold Hoey Senior luncheon. The response has been dropping the last couple of years and we felt that the money could be used for more productive things. We are considering using it for a scholarship for some local students or putting it toward our trips to visit the wounded veterans.

We are planning to play the Veterans from Ray Callinan’s VFW post again. We are looking at the second week in June. When details are finalized we will post them on our website.
