  • We’ve moved more Vets into Apartments!

    On Thursday, October 10 we moved Albert Hurt (below left, with Gary) from the VA Domiciliary in Anchorage into an apartment. He came to our storage unit and picked out a bed, couch, lamps, dining table and chairs, some clothing and kitchen utensils. We then took him shopping and bought him a coffee pot, toaster, shower curtain, pots and pans, a “bed in a bag”, a lot of coffee and some food. He was very thankful. On Saturday, October 12, we moved Denim Krause (above right, with Teri and Gary) into an apartment, but we were running out of things. We did still have a couch, a recliner, a bookcase, a Wii console and some small items, then we went to store and bought him a new television - Denim is having his knee replaced and really wanted a TV to watch while he was recovering. On Friday, October 25 we moved furniture into the new home of Gordon, another veteran from the Domiciliary. Gordon is now almost 6 months without a drink and thanking God everyday - a real nice man who spends his time helping other vets. L to R: Gordon, Todd Schlegel of Anchorage Lodge, and Gary Washburn.

  • Meal Pricing Clarified

    Meal Pricing: Don’t panic - prices are not going up! Many of us in the kitchen adjust the price of a meal for a child or when it is a not a full meal, and we haven’t done it consistently when we are busy. So the Board has set these standard prices: Burger night: Standard meal: $8; double meat: $11; single fry or tot: $3; double fry or tot: $6; burger/chicken patty/black bean burger with no fries or tots: $5; kids meal (under 16) $6. Breakfast: Standard meal: $8; two biscuits and gravy: $5; Waffle or pancakes only: $5; kid’s breakfast (under 16): $5; breakfast sandwich only: $5.
