Local St. Nick Asks Bristolians Play Host to GIs
We found this while going through the archives at the Bristol Phoenix. From the December 9, 1952 edition of the Bristol Phoenix:
For servicemen away from home at Christmas, James D. Rielly today made an appeal. He would like to see Bristol families who will have an empty place at their Christmas table, invite some lonesome servicemen and make him feel at home although he may be miles away from it.
We continue Jim Rielly’s work today by working closely with local veterans and military family support groups in our community.
