Let’s Get Garberville Vet’s Hall Fixed,’ Demands Petition Being Signed Today at Fireworks Stand
According to a spokesperson we talked to by phone yesterday, the petition is asking the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors to allow the group to fix the Garberville Vet’s Hall.
Garberville Veterans of Foreign Wars post 6354 Quartermaster Loren Pancoast said the building was closed due to 15 years of deferred maintenance, namely a leaking roof, that veterans brought to the attention of the county but never got fixed.
“It’s a county building,” he said. “They keep insisting we have to rebuild. That we can’t fix the hall. There’s some controversy in that but that’s what their engineers say.”
The spokesperson said that the group wants to fix the Hall not rebuild it and they are asking customers at their firework stand near the clock on Redwood Drive in Garberville to sign their petition so that the Hall can be open again for meetings, classes, and dances, etc.
