POWERS - The First National Bank of Norway recently donated $500 to the American Legion Tony Revord Post 244 in support of the Legion's building project. The donation is in appreciation to the community for the support of the bank's new Powers branch opening.
Members of Post 244 are building a 90x16-foot addition to their Legion Hall located in Powers. The purpose of this addition is to make the facility wheelchair accessible, including a handicapped-accessible bathroom.
The building currently has no indoor plumbing at all, which makes the addition a very important project in making it possible for more local veterans and their families to participate in Legion meetings and events.
A check for $500 was recently presented to American Legion Tony Revord Post 244 of Powers by The First National Bank of Norway. The funds will help offset the expense of renovating the Legion hall. On hand for the presentation are: from left, Sons of the American Legion Commander, Mike LaBonte; American Legion Auxillary President, Jan Hafeman; American Legion Commander, Richard Sexton; and Powers/Carney Branch Manager, Nicole Hardwick.
The Legion anticipates that most of the construction labor will be donated by Legion membership, the Sons of the American Legion membership and local volunteers.
The actual anticipated expense of this project for materials, concrete, and other necessities is expected to be over $20,000
