That has changed with the on-going revitalization of Chapel Hill Post 6. They are rebuilding the post’s library at no cost. The post has been receiving books from local veterans, members, and others looking for a site other than a local thrift shop. Most books are military in nature, but some are handyman-oriented or instructive.
Post Commander Heavlin said, “We started to hear from members and local families that they were donating books that might be of interest to our members. These books are new or in near new condition. We will share the books and use them as reference books as our post speakers prepare to visit schools and civic groups.”
Post 6 is also working on a veteran’s center and day office for the post. “We want to have our post occupied during the day to welcome and greet interested veterans. Our center has internet access and a few personal computers,” he said. Learn more
This is just one of many ways that district posts can create a low cost/no cost benefit for post members and returning veterans. What about your post?
