CLC Receives a Baby Grand Piano
Thanks to a generous donation by the Presidio Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the CLC now has a baby grand piano for playing wonderful music for their Veteran residents to enjoy. The piano was dedicated at a Ribbon Cutting ceremony in November 2015.
Poinsettias Donated by the Benvolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge #3 and Books Donated by the 7th Graders from St. Brigid School
On December 1, 2015 we received a donation of Poinsettias from the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge #3, which were distributed by the 7th Graders from St. Brigid School throughout our Medical Center. Not only did the students hand out Poinsettias, they delivered paperback books to our outpatient clinics in Building 200. The students held a paperback book drive the past month and donated 627 books.
