Windham Veterans Association received an additional $2,500 toward the Toby’s Dream campaign this past week when Modern Woodmen matched $2,500 of the money the Veterans raised with $2,500 for a total of $5,000 toward the project.
To date WVA has raised over $54,000 toward the paving of the parking lot at the Windham Veterans Center. Twenty names will be considered “grand donors” having donated $1,000 or more.
Any additional money WVA raises will go toward other improvements in the property. The paving is planned for this summer, but details are still being worked out, according to Brenda Pennels.
“WVA appreciates all the support for the project from the Pennels family, Veterans and the community,” said Don Swander, the project director for and creator of the Toby’s Dream project. WVA hopes to complete the paving this summer.
