On the Tuesday, prior to the second Saturday of each month, we join the Veterans in the PTSD Program for a Ping Pong/Pizza Social. This began in April of 2010. The PTSD Program Recreational Therapist was looking for help in finding equipment to help occupy the "down time" of those enrolled in the seven week Program. Colorado PGR Members donated funds to purchase a ping pong table, paddles, etc.. We have been participating in this monthly social for about eight years and it has been a great event for all involved.

The VA Hospital is located at 1055 Clermont Street, in Denver and
the PTSD Unit is now on the 1st floor. Please use the northern most entrance.

The Socials begin at 6:00PM. Take the elevator to the 7th floor and turn right (west) to the PTSD Unit.

The schedule for 2018 is:

09 JANUARY
06 FEBRUARY
06 MARCH
03 APRIL
08 MAY
05 JUNE
10 JULY
07 AUGUST
04 SEPTEMBER
09 OCTOBER
06 NOVEMBER
04 DECEMBER

About two months ago, shortly after the relocation of the PTSD Unit to the site of the former Nursing Home, the Ping Pong table that was purchased by the Colorado PGR, about eighteen months ago, was stolen. The first table that was purchased was repaired and resurrected and worked okay at the last Social. I just heard from James, our primary contact at the VA. Because the table was stolen from VA property, they have agreed to replace the table. Hopefully, it will be available for the April Social.

The PTSD Program participants have been provided with tickets for the Rockies baseball game on April 10th, therefore, we will reschedule the Social to Tuesday, April 3rd.
