Six members of the Gonzales Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary 3693 and one nonmember visited the Ascension Oaks Nursing Home on Oct. 28 to host a bingo game and serve the residents ice cream.

About 23 residents attended the event. Ice cream was served in the dining room and in patients’ rooms. Upon leaving, the residents thanked the ladies for the bingo game and the ice cream.

The group also will visit Gonzales Healthcare Center.
