For over (60) sixty years the IVA has been a place of gathering for veterans and their supporters.
In 2011 the post was struck by a tornado. The tornado destroyed the post and a large portion of the recreational pavilion as well.
The then slimming ranks and declining revenue had forced the VFW post to operate without any commercial insurance on the property. This created a very heavy financial blow to the post.
The months following saw a cleanup effort mounted where veterans and supporters policed several square miles of pasture to retrieve the debris and dispose of the non-usable refuse.
Community members, businesses and veterans all have played a critical role in the salvaging of the property.
The past several years have seen a lot of individual effort and desire to carry on the traditions of the IVA.
We now have an opportunity to return a post to the Indiantown Community.
Twin Oaks Pet Cemetery has graciously given us the opportunity to take ownership of their old office facility so they can grow into their new one.
Here is what it looks like:
The cost to transport the building is quoted Five Thousand Dollars more than we can in good stewardship allocate. Doing so leaves us with no funds for site prep and County permitting.
With the 5k it will get the IVA to a point that we are in possession of a new post.
The next step will be to initiate a drain field for occupancy requirements.
Our pre-planning with FPL has allowed us to have electric in place and ready for quick and easy access.
We are blessed to live in a town that has strong American values and ethics. We have once again picked ourselves up by the boot straps. And as we grow closer to completion of the recreational pavilion reconstruction, life is slowly returning to the property.
As members and supporters alike we prepare for the soon to come day that we will once again return the IVA to her rightful seat as the meeting place for Indiantown Veterans and their supporters.
Please Help if you are able.
