Our Prior Lake VFW was once the home of a beautiful Movie theatre. We are BACK! Reopened and now finishing off the Furnishing and Bar Equipment upgrades
It is in this spirit that we are asking friends and supporters of the VFW to kindly consider a Tax-Deductible donation towards sponsoring a specific item which will be recognized with a donor Plaque and honored on our website. Elevator/Lift ($125,000.00),1 of 2 Sofas ($3000.00 ea), Website Upgrade ($2500), 1-4 Lounge Chairs ($1000.00 ea), Barstool ($300 ea), Memorial Brick ($200.00 ea). Or just choose a Sponsor level. 5-Star-Sponsor $50,000, 4-Star-Sponsor $25,000, 3-Star-Sponsor $10,000, 2-Star-Sponsor $5,000, 1-Star-Sponsor $1,000, Warrior-Sponsor $500, Hero-Sponsor $100.
Summarizing the updated status of our amazing project, I offer the following: Phases I and Il completed new handicap ramps, a new Bar, new office and storage spaces, upgrades to plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems, widened entrance door, and has added a required front staircase entryway to the lower floor per State Fire Code. This vast endeavor required us to plan for and complete many Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ‘Accessible Design’ improvements. We added Phase III which provided more dedicated ADA bar and dining service space, as well as creating a new handicap accessible stage. Furthermore, once our building loan is paid down, we will be pursuing a proposal to transform our lower level into a first-class veteran lounge and conference center. Finally, we will be adding a much-anticipated elevator-lift to make our lower-level ADA compliant.
Yours in Comradeship,
