June Special Warrior Dinner Event

The June flower event started with a bang.....Lots of spoil flower donations from our partner Trader Joe's Reston, Fresh Yarrow and Mums donation from Anne Harvey (Herndon Florist), we just love her and some help on Thursday (Elaine and Nancy L.) to break down and condition the flowers for our special dinner event.
Friday volunteers created 13 table arrangements, two baskets (door prizes) and our trademark flags.  Everyone worked very hard to finish all the glass cube vases for delivery that afternoon.

Nancy's Creation


We adorned each arrangement with donated flag parasols.  It's funny I was told they had 12 tables but when I got there they told me they had 14 tables but had removed one.  We made 13, go figure.

Keith got so lost trying to find the Capital Hill Club......lots of closed roads in D.C.  But when I arrived Margaret and the staff were ready for our arrangments.  They serve a total of 130. The wounded warrior members and their families.  This happens because of the Aleethia Foundation.  They serve the members a free donner every Friday night in different venues in D.C.  We are so excited to be part of this wounded warrior project.
