The Sarah Emma Seelye Auxiliary 1 held a Hot Chocolate Christmas Brunch for patients in the Nursing Home Unit at the Michael DeBakey Medical Center in Houston on Saturday, December 12. Assisting the Auxiliary were members of the Lt. Cmdr. Edward Lea, USN, Camp 2. Each veteran was given a beautiful Christmas gift bag filled with much-needed items.
A light brunch of sandwiches, chips, Christmas cookies, candies, hot chocolate and cider was served. The Auxiliary and Camp sang Christmas carols for entertainment, and brothers went around talking and sharing with the veterans. The Auxiliary also recently held their 8th annual Sock and Blanket drive, using the donations for the veterans’ Christmas.
