The Betterment or Bust group raised $1,700 Saturday soliciting at the intersection of Highway 2 and 5. The donations will be used for improvements to the VFW Hall, also known as the CB&Q Railroad Depot, on the Levee in Centerville.
This building was taken over by the VFW because of it’s historical value and their need for a meeting hall. It also serves as a staging area for military funerals. Their volunteers attend each and every military funeral, when requested.
Currently BOB is replacing the curbing around the building. The new curbing will allow them to reset all the pavers around the building. They also plan to make minor roof repairs, upgrade/restore the plumbing and bathrooms and continue with general clean-up around the building. The building is available to rent for a modest fee to individuals or groups.
