Ohio’s Elks Participate in Baby Shower for Women Veterans

Pregnant women and babies everywhere!

The South Central Elks, along with the Blue Star Mothers and the American Legion Auxiliary arrived at a quiet Chalmers Wylie Care Center on Saturday, June 22nd to get ready for a baby shower for women veterans.

The ladies arranged pink and blue around the room, three tables of gifts, provided goodies to eat, and a playroom equipped with toys and books and a therapy dog for big brothers and sisters to play with while mom’s-to-be enjoyed the afternoon.

The typical games were played and every vet got the opportunity to tell us a little about herself and where she had served.

The gifts and supplies where purchased by the three organizations along with additional items donated to Chalmers Wylie Care Center.

All the moms were very appreciative and one young mom gave us a big hug saying that this would be the only shower she would have for her first born child.
