The Baguettes tour the Veterans Home at Yountville

Earlier this month the Baguettes, Cora Moore, Leslie Ary, Mirna Estes, Lavella Cassinelli and Cora Stewart visited the Veterans Home in Yountville.  They delivered 62 wheelchair bags (year to date 162! have been delivered) and 6 sidearm bags.  The volunteer director, Susan Heims, seen with them in the photo, took them on a tour of the facilities and narrated a brief history.  The home, the largest of its kind in the country, was founded in 1882.  It had nearly 1000 acres and was a working farm.  500+ acres remain.  While Veterans’ Day is observed there, the bigest celebration and ceremony is Memorial day in the spring.  The town of Yountville has several facilities on the grounds, such as a municipal swimming pool and a baseball field, which are open to the residents.
