LOCKPORT CARES and VIETNAM WAR PHOTOS Adventure on September 18, 2015

I picked Pam up this morning and we headed to LOCKPORT CARES (the local homeless shelter) for their Open House and Yard Sale. At first it looked like maybe it was only a yard sale, but eventually a tour was offered. Our guide was an Australian gal with a very nice accent. She took us through the building and talked to us about the program. Then we went to Niagara Produce to pick up some rolls for lunch at Pam's apartment. She prepared tuna salad sandwiches, and served chips and a banana cake that she baked for a friends birthday the day before. It was very good. She showed me a few old books she has. One of them is a cookbook and I found this recipe for Yorkshire Pudding:
Then we went to the Kenan Center for the VIETNAM VETERANS: Our Photo Album. This was several rooms and hallways with pictures taken during the war by US troops. We met and talked with a Vietnam War Veteran (Rich Dever) and a World War 2 Veteran (Bob Chatt).
Meeting them and talking to them was the highlight of this event. Bob's wife was there, also. She was in England during the "BLITZ" at the age of fifteen. The exhibit is wonderful. although very sobering.
