Scottsville VFW Needs Your Help

Wednesday, August 19th 2015 - All Day at Downtown Scottsville
Valley St.

VFW Post 8169 of Scottsville is asking for the community’s help to replace their roof. They’ ve done some patchwork, but the roof needs a full replacement. Members of the VFW Post 8169 are seeking your help to raise the necessary funds. They estimate the roof replacement will cost around $10,000. Volunteers are also needed for manual labor to remove the current roof. With all the things these veterans have done to serve our country, let’s donate to repair their building.
