Wellhaven Senior Living veterans and American Legion members enjoy monthly luncheons together.

The luncheons began when Legion members Jim Miller and Jerry Morrow realized how many veterans are connected to Wellhaven and the River Falls Senior Center. The pair had attended the Wellhaven Veterans Day ceremony.

"When we came in and saw how many Legion members lived at Wellhaven, we wanted to do something with them," explained Miller, River Falls American Legion Post 121 Commander.

Jim and Jerry met with Wellhaven team members to discuss options. Together, they came up with the idea of a monthly luncheon for Wellhaven Veterans and Legion members. During the luncheon, Legion members share upcoming meeting information but also enjoy the camaraderie.

River Falls seniors are welcome to join us for our Senior Pizza Party at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7 at Wellhaven Senior Living, 119 Union St., River Falls. The party, hosted by Wellhaven and the River Falls Senior Center, is free for all area seniors. For more information, contact Wellhaven Senior Living at 715-426-4646.
