Grants are already paying off, as it’s a busy week planned at the Buckeye Community Veterans Service Center.
“We have received two additional grants this year,” said Daniel R. Stark, commander of Post 53.
He said Home Depot contributed $1,000 and $2,000 came from the city of Buckeye.
“These grants will go to the continued upgrade to our building,” Stark said.
A Veterans Day Parade through Buckeye is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 10. Starting at 530 East Monroe Avenue and ending at the Buckeye Community Veterans Service Center with lunch.
