OC to welcome national figure
The president of the national Purple Heart Homes will be welcomed during an event tomorrow at the Duke World of Energy. John Gallina will get to meet the members of the local chapter, as well as talk to individuals considering volunteering for projects that offer personalized solutions to disabled veterans and their families. Keowee Key resident Larry Druffel serves as president of the Oconee chapter, whose three projects have caught the attention of the national organization. One of those projects allowed for the widening of a bathroom door for a Walhalla veteran in a wheelchair.
