The Yellow Ribbon Fund recently hosted about 80 of its members at Old Glory Distilling Co. for what they called Date Night. Debbie Fields is YRF's Caregiver Event Coordinator. “We've been around for 20 years,” Fields said. “We take care of veterans who are wounded and/or disabled as well as their caregivers, and families.” Fields coordinates events in the Middle Tennessee/Southern Kentucky area. “We do everything from gun range events to scuba diving to Date Night,” Fields said. “We have coffee outings and dinners. Some events are just for caregivers, some are for families and some are for spouses. “Nicolettas supervised the catering and Anna Marie provided the entertainment for Date Night. A gentleman (his name and title?) from First Command Financial spoke to our guests about financial planning, life insurance and related topics. Other speakers included ___ (name them with their titles and topics). Fields says that YRF has found that by dressing up these events and making them fun they can get valuable information to its members. “We bring them out to a beautiful venue and serve them dinner,” Fields said. “It gives our members an opportunity to meet other veterans who have served in the same places as them. They can make new friends and learn about assistance provided for transitions in their lives,” she said.
