"The Wright Brothers," written by David McCullough

"As I am truly looking forward to rejoining my Book Club at The Armed Forces Retirement Home, Washington, D.C. once our present health risks subside, I am grateful that we continue to read together and discuss extraordinary books.  Our Book Club recently discussed "The Wright Brothers," written by David McCullough.  After reading my thoughts about this exceptional book, I hope that you take a look at the lives of Wilbur and Orville Wright...you will be inspired!"

An Evening With America's Finest, Fellowship Across The Generations.


Smiles, laughter, and a sense of ease that can only come from a gathering where true fellowship is being shared, was the essence of the event, "An Evening With America's Finest."  On Saturday, 29 February, at the Parish Center of St. Rita's Catholic Church, 18 of my dear friends from The Armed Forces Retirement Center, Washington, D.C. joined my friends and parishioners of St. Rita's for an evening of delicious foods, wonderful conversations, and lively music.
