Building Addition Fund

Post 249's building was built in 1921 and has no changes to it's design with exceptions of minor routine maintenance. We wish to add on 30 foot to the back of the Post updating the restrooms to ADA compliance and raising the kitchen from below street level to street level along with updating its equipment. Early estimates are around $400,000.  Send donation to Post 249 Building Fund at 220 E. Yosemite Ave Manteca, CA 95336 or attend some post functions like the 5k run.
