Posted: Friday, September 10, 2021

VFW Post 2689 donated $3,000 to the Purple Heart committee on Wednesday, September 8. The donation was given as a result of the profits from the VFW golf outing, and will be used to help fund the Purple Heart obelisk that will be built and erected on W. Park Drive later this year. The obelisk will depict all branches of the military including the Purple Heart logo.
