As fundraising efforts continue to build a new Veterans Center in Chillicothe, the organizers, Livingston County Veterans Association (LICOVA), are moving into the final phase of the center’s design. Ed Allender is the president of LICOVA and says they met at the sight to get a feel for the size of the building and make final plans.
Allender says they are still raising funds for the construction of the facility that will house both the VFW and the American Legion.
The new facility, located just south of the new Children’s Library will have a large meeting area at the front, with a kitchen, offices, and a private meeting area near the back. They will also have a parking lot on the south side of the building.
In addition to American Legion and VFW activities, the facility will be available for private functions.
