The new Veterans Administration Veterans Medical Clinic broke ground in Mid April 2013. It will take about one year to complete and will be located off M-6, the first exit past US131 freeway, Byron Center exit.
If you have some snacks, cookies, chips, decafe coffee, fruit, crackers, bottles of juice, etc to donate to the VA clinic, they desperately need your donations. As you may or may not be aware, a group of volunteers keep a snack area available to all veterans and their families so they can have snacks, fruit drinks or decafe coffee available, free to those coming into the clinic 5 days a week. Drop it off at the post or give directly to the volunteers at the snack station. Make sure you keep track of what you did, costs involved and mileage so the post can report services performed by members of the post each month.
