The local VFW facilities are utilized frequently for not only Rotary events but also community events such as celebrations of lives and fundraiser for members of the community to help pay medical bills. Having access to the facilities has proven to be instrumental for the community in supporting one another. The kitchen is in need of being updated along with the bath rooms and the large room typically used for all kinds of community events. Two $2000 will be used for to update appliances and equipment in the kitchen to bring it up to date and more efficient. One $1000 will be used to update each of the bath rooms with new fixtures for a total of $2000. There for we are requesting $4000. The large room is roughly 1200 square feet and will benefit drastically from an update in the paint. Additional work will be put into the facilities as funding allows. The majority of the labor will be on a voluntary basis in order to make the funds go as far as possible to have a greater impact for the community.
In February the Rotary will hold a fund raiser in conjunction with the VFW to help raise funds for this project. The work will then be performed thought the year as funds are made available and the priority of work has been established with the help of the VFW manager.
Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)
The VFW and Rotary held their fundraising event and raised approximately $16,000. Now the VFW is in the process of establishing priorities for the upgrades.
