Jackson Lions Club members played bingo Sept. 1 with the veterans at the Louisiana War Veterans Home in Jackson.

Before the game started, the veterans who are diabetic were given diabetic socks donated by Nancy Bickham, of the Alexander Stirling Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

The veterans also received homemade bags to go on their walkers and wheelchairs.

Mary Lynn Tarver , a member of Jackson United Methodist, donated more than 20 pieces of tapestry material to Jackson Lions Club member Beth Dawson. Dawson gave the material to Shirley Sibley, of Second Baptist Church, who made the walker and wheelchair bags for the veterans.
