Acknowledge and Support Heinzen-Ditter VFW

There are many ways to support Veterans, Service Members and their families. The VFWs do this in a variety of important ways 24/7 and they also need our help and support for their efforts from time to time.

Heinzen-Ditter VFW, a longstanding partner with PBYR is sprucing up the exterior of their building with lighted signs—a not inexpensive task! This will permit easier recognition of the building and provide a more welcoming atmosphere and entry.

The PBYR Board recently approved a $200 donation for this work and recognizes the need to support such a valued partner. These signs are pricey and any additional financial support that you could provide as individuals or as companies would be appreciated by Heinzen-Ditter VFW and PBYR. Their address is —

  • Hamel VFW #5903
    19020 Hamel Rd,
    Plymouth, MN 55446
