Activities and events: Introduction to hand drum singing and a hands on drumming workshop was well received by all attending the meeting.


Close order drill will be determined at a future date at the Joaquin Sandoval AO.

The Round Robin encourages our Veterans to bring out issues and emotions in a supportive, compassionate, environment. Our goal is that participation with other brothers and sisters in arms will further the healing process and bring us all back into the world of harmony and balance again.
