Alumni gather to help at Joseph House
On Saturday, August 10, members of two alumni groups
(the St. Nick and Veterans Memorial crews)
worked together to host a cookout for a group of 35+ veterans who are in a drug and alcohol rehab program and live at The Joseph House in Over-the-Rhine. There was a mountain of food...burgers, metts, brats, potato salad, baked beans, mac and cheese, chips, watermelon, brownies and pie. Everyone had their fill and the leftovers were divvied up to enjoy again later. We were under the impression that this was a feast compared to the food that the guests are served on a regular basis.
It was a perfect day to grill out, visit, and encourage a group of veterans who have fallen on tough times but are working hard to overcome. We hope to get the chance to visit with them again.
