Funds Needed to Complete Study for Armory Preservation
We are just $6000
from the having the funds for a study on the restoration and renovation of the Armory.
Will you contribute $10 or $25 toward this project?
One of the
Horizon's Action Teams have taken on the project of raising the last $6,000 needed to move
forward on a study of the costs of restoration, renovation and self-sustainability of the
Villisca Armory. They will be doing a letter writing campaign which will include the help
of some of the young people in the community, having a Sunday Dinner Fundraiser in March
2009. A couple other fun and exciting activities are in the works. The goal is to
get a realistic look at the costs and feasibility of keeping the Armory as a piece of
Villisca history and moving forward as it becoming once again at the center of social,
cultural and economic life in Villisca.
Contributions should be sent to Mary Hansen at the Villisca Historical Society, 113 West
5th Street, Villisca, IA 50864. Contributions should be noted that they are for
the Armory Project.
