Our original building was 66 years old when it flooded in 2016 and we were forced to demolish it. We want our new building to be a place of happiness and positivity for all veterans to enjoy and commiserate with their brothers and sisters. We're trying to build something for veterans that can't be found elsewhere. Camaraderie isn’t found in a VA hospital or a bland government office building. Most veterans today just want a place to reconnect with their old friends and have a place where they can continue their service.

Our main source of revenue will be event hall rental for wedding receptions, parties, large meetings, corporate training, etc. In the future we plan to add space for veteran counseling, a changing room, a small enclosure for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, playground equipment for kids and a baseball field. Your donation will help us get back on track to serving our community and veterans.

This is the single best way to support your local veterans! Thank you for YOUR support!
