Special to The R-C

On March 22, Carson Valley Art Association members gave the Veterans Guest House in Reno a painting, which they had selected from the in-house show at Western Nevada Community College’s Minden campus.

Noreen Leary from the Veterans Guest House was there to receive the painting.

Leary said she was originally a school teacher, but was drawn into working for this cause.

She said it had been noticed that in some cases, veterans and their families had been sleeping in their cars on cold winter nights in Reno waiting for their medical treatments at the Veterans Administration Hospital.

A home was found that the veterans could use, and since then they have added more homes and managed to provide modest meals.

Denning received $200 from CVAA for the painting.
