Nevada Veterans Foundation (Richard Small, Chairman; Robert Serge, Webmaster; Len Yelinek). Lions Club (Irv Conofino), and Murry L. Rosen Jewish War Veterans Post 64 (Mickey Durkin, Sandy & Sheila Epstein, Ken Hill & Janet Synder). Cadie & Maria from the Fisher House thanked Mickey Durkin for all she did to get the donation of the two BBQ grills and installation at the Fisher House. Attending (in photo with Ken Hill) was Ramu Komanduri, MD., Chief of the Staff of the VA Medical Center in North Las Vegas; Peggy Kearns, Director of the VA Medical Center, plus many other local veterans and families, including Vito Valdez, Amy Survivor Outreach Services Support Coordinator and Yvette Weigold. It was a festive occasion. Dr Richard Small gave us a tour of the Fisher House, which is most impressive. Among the guests we talked with a military spouse who was staying at the Fisher House while her husband was getting treatment at V A Medical Center.
