The Hamel VFW is throwing a back to the 50’s Style Dinner & Dance on Saturday, March 23rd. We’ll serving a “malt shop dinner”. There’s going to be free dance lessons at 6:30 ( by TC Swing), prizes for best costumes and more. The Arcades will be playing their great classic rock. This is one you don’t want to miss!
Last year this event was a complete sellout. Call for reservations if you have a large group and get there early.
The Heinzen-Ditter VFW is remodeling their restrooms to make them ADA compliant and to deal with the age, mobility problems and disabilities experienced by elderly Veterans.
PBYR will assist the VFW with monetary support for this project. If anyone with construction experience that would like to further donate some time and expertise to assist the VFW with this project, please coordinate directly with Bernie Stein.
Bernie and I have reviewed costs and material. All were expertly put together as Bernie has significant experience with managing engineering projects. Bernie is a West Point grad and currently serves as the VFW’s quartermaster. This project includes 3 restrooms: men, women and family — all meeting ADA guidelines.
Home Depot has contributed $3000 to date and it is unknown whether they will contribute more. Some of the estimated costs may be increased or reduced due to Home Depot’s military discount applies to some items and not others. I reviewed the paperwork and plans and believe this project is a go from all perspectives. The following is the plan :
PBYR makes an immediate $5000.00 donation to the VFW. PBYR will review the additional amount needed for the project as construction progresses with Bernie and give another donation after clarification of final costs and Home Depot’s total grant contribution and discount.
PBYR will present a Plaque to be displayed at the VFW after all construction is completed. Gary will coordinate with Sun Sailor as needed as they want a picture of PBYR presenting the plaque.
This project meets the mission of PBYR and will help Veterans for many years. PBYR would not have been able to help without the yearly support and trust of the Plymouth Lions!! Hug a Lion if you see one!!
