Connecting with Wellhaven veterans

Veterans 1Together, Wellhaven Senior Living team members and members of the River Falls American Legion Post 121 created a new opportunity for veterans in the community. In November, Jim Miller, Legion Post 121 Commander and fellow Legion member Jerry Morrow attended a Veteran’s Day ceremony at Wellhaven.

“When we came in and saw how many veterans lived at Wellhaven, we wanted to do something with them,” explained Jim.

Together, they came up with the idea of a monthly luncheon for Wellhaven veterans and Legion members. During the luncheons, Legion members share upcoming meeting information.

“This new opportunity is wonderful for our veterans,” said Laura Swanson, Activities Coordinator and Marketing Assistant at Wellhaven. “Having monthly meetings with Legion members gives our tenant veterans multiple opportunities to learn and ask questions regarding the Legion.”
