PBYR makes $5000 donation to VFW

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!!

FAC Newsletter February Edition – Empowering Your Financial Future

I hope this email finds you warm and safe! I know the weather has been a challenge for traveling, health, and snow shoveling! Please be careful out there!
Attached is this month’s newsletter. I focused on financial wellness, tax tools available for military members, and ideas for empowering families to take charge of their spending. There are many resources available for military families to get them started on a solid financial plan. With furloughs, layoffs, and many other life changes that can happen, having a solid plan in place can make a huge difference in how these events effect a family. If you know of a Service Member or Family Member that could use assistance, please let me know, I am always to help to see if there is a resource that they can be matched with.Thank you for all you do. As always, if I can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me, I am happy to help!
