To the Editor:

If all goes according to plan, groundbreaking for the Montevideo Veterans Home is slated for the fall of 2019 with occupancy beginning in May of 2021. It is a pretty exciting time for the Veterans Home Committee (VHC) which has been working on this project for over a decade. More support is needed in the way of donations, small or large, which will be matched two for one by the Federal Department of Veterans Affairs. In the words of Marvin Garbe, VHC Chairman, “Time is of the essence, we must have the money escrowed with the State of Minnesota by November.”

Please send your donations to “City of Montevideo, (attn: Montevideo Veterans Home Project), P.O. Box 517, Montevideo, Minnesota, 56265.
