Today's program was presented by Mr. Steve Baird. He spoke about the Veteran's housing project that he oversees along with his other veteran team members. The house serves as temporary lodging for those veterans in need and serves a maximum of 14 people. The project, which goes by the name Casa de Flores is located in Santa Maria and has proven to be a great success story. After the presentation, our club was happy to contribute a total of $6,000 (see picture) to help them with their ongoing operating expenses.
