The Billy is proud to have provided a safe place for veterans, friends and families to socialize and support each other for generations. Now we need your help.
The gable roof on the original building requires reparation. Installed in 2006, it is at its limit with shingles currently becoming detached exposing the wood underneath. Aside from the critical repairs required, there is a long list of needed building components needing replacement as our amazing volunteers are reaching the end in trying to repair and salvage them; always to keep our premises safe – Staircases, shed, appliances…just to name a few.
We have a GoFundMe campaign to help raise the much-needed funds.  If you find it in your heart and are able to reach out, anything helps – there is no minimum amount. The Billy has served the community for many many years, and now depends on the community for their generosity to help with the crucial repairs. To help out,  please click the link below or as always, we invite you to visit us at the Branch. Meet old friends and make some new ones.  
On behalf of your Branch Executive, thank-you! To those who have already donated we are so very grateful and THANK YOU!

PLEASE SUPPORT THE BRANCH
IF YOU ARE ABLE

 

  A great big thank you to Komo roofing for completing the replacement of the Gable Roof at the branch on time and on budget. Dealing with Kevin Luethi was a pleasure and seamless. The project was completed without interference with Branch Operations or with member access. Our sincerest recommendations for workmanship, scheduling and all aspects before, during and after the project.
