Limo lunch 12_19_2018_2

FUMC Military Ministry held a combined event at Tony and Joes Seafood Restaurant on the Potomac in Georgetown. It was the first time we held an event with guests from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, MD, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Washington DC., and the 6 Fisher Houses in Bethesda, MD and Washington DC. We had a group of 20 which included the FUMC sponsors (Ed and Allen) and our 2 long time Limo Drivers (Arthur and Guy). We were pleased to be able host Evette Fields-Matthews our Government events coordinator and friend from WRNMMC. Veterans from the Army, Navy and Marine Corps under medical care at WRNMMC & VA were hosted. We had a superb meal, wonderful fellowship & joyfully celebrated Christmas holiday, the Military and the 16th Anniversary of a Veteran family. The event while a great experience for all, was bittersweet. Tony & Joe’s has funded much of the costs of this event. for 3 years 8 months supporting 500 Veterans However, as is their practice, have moved to a new charity starting in 2018. We presented a Certificate  and letter to Tony & Joe’s for their years of support and we toasted their management & staff.  We all experienced a very fine time.
