Corning Veterans Memorial Hall Receives $2,000,000 in Federal Funding:

According to a January 30, 2023 press release, Congressman Doug LaMalfa announced that he obtained $2,000,000 in federal funding for the Corning Veterans Memorial Hall Rehabilitation.  This project will rehabilitate the Corning Veterans Memorial Hall which was constructed in 1931 to ensure that the area’s local veterans continue to have a meeting place and the general public has access to a common meeting point, providing full benefit to the entire town.  Due to age, the facility has a number of structural, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, and other defects which limits the use of the facility and threatens its continued operation.  The work will also include restoration of walls, windows, and floors to their previous condition, as well as renovation to the building’s kitchen and restrooms.

Thank you to Congressman LaMalfa and all others involved in helping to obtain this much needed federal funding.
