It is my pleasure, and my honor, to bring all of Bedford the news that we are opening the first Bedford Twp. Veterans Center! Modeled after a standard Veterans Center and a USO, it will be a place for all Veterans and their family’s to come and hang out and enjoy all that we will have to offer. The Veterans Center will be located at 760 W. Temperance Rd. in Temperance, MI, right next to Sunoco (the old post office).
We are not open to the public just yet, but currently we are working hard to finish the inside of this building. Below we will list some of our needs to be able to finish and open the doors! We will do our best to have a grand opening for ALL to come and see what Bedford’s hard work for these last 6 months has done. Without each and every one of your support, we could never take care of the men and women that protect our freedoms! Please remember we do not receive tax dollars from the Township and we have 100% relied on the hearts of our people, which has never failed us! The smallest of donation will keep our lights on! Many do not realize how many Veterans this Town has! I can tell you we have hundreds! And the registration is not complete, there are many who have not had the chance to stop by or have not heard of us! Spread the word so we can reach every single Military Veteran in Bedford Twp!!
Please, if there is anything you would like to help with, contact me day or night.
