'Thank you' from members of  VFW Post 2425

May 16, 2017

To the Editor:

As the most recent commander of the VFW Post 2425, I, am very pleased with the renovations to the former VFW building. Several other veterans and members of VFW Post 2425 agree with me.

We would like to thank Marion’s Facilities Manager Shaun Cormier, as well as Recreation Director Jody Dickerson for their outstanding job of renovating the former VFW building. We very much approve of the changes that were made and the work that has happened on the grounds. The 105 howitzer artillery piece and the flower beds around it, the flagpole in memory of Benjamin D Cushing; it’s all perfect.

We would also like to thank Marion’s Council on Aging Director Heather Sylvia for her part in coordinating the interior painting and color schemes, and setting up office spaces. She has always been outgoing and willing to help anyone, and we feel that she should have a big thank you. We are happy to see her moving into the new facility.

We send our thanks to all concerned in helping to make the community center a place that all Marion residents can and will enjoy.


Thank You,

BJ Barros Jr.

Past Commander, VFW Post 2425
