The City of Montevideo has announced that there will be a Community Celebration on Wed., Sept. 12, at 4 p.m. to celebrate the state’s approval of the Montevideo Area Veterans Home. In addition, the event will be an opportunity to thank all those that have worked for and supported the project over the past 11 years.

The celebration will kick off with a program at the site of the future veterans home located at the intersection of County Rd. 15 and Williams Ave., and  will last approximately one hour.

After the conclusion of the program at the veterans home site, everyone will be invited to go to the American Legion for comments and thank you’s from several of the dignitaries who have fought long and hard to bring the project to fruition. A light lunch and refreshments will be then served.

The Veterans Home Project cleared a major hurdle recently when the project was included in the state’s Bonding Bill. Application to the Veter­ans Administra­tion for funding to move forward with the project will take place early in 2019.

The Montevideo Vet­erans Home Committee would like to thank and invite all veterans and those who have supported and assisted in any way with the project to attend this very special event!
