Fundraiser to benefit Army chapel project
Tuesday, October 23, 2012
A local heritage group that hopes to turn an old Army chapel into a military museum will hold a fundraising event Saturday.
The Vancouver Barracks Military Association will hold a dance and costume ball at 8 p.m. at 2700 E. 28th St.
The building, now a church hall adjacent to Memorial Lutheran, was built as a World War II-era chapel at Camp Hathaway. That location now is the campus of Clark College.
The event includes a presentation of "Haunted Vancouver and Portland" by Jeff Davis, a military historian and co-author of "Weird Washington."
Requested donations are $15 each in advance and $20 at the door. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to order.
The nonprofit Vancouver Barracks Military Association hopes to convert the building into a military museum.
Raffle and auction prizes will be provided by local and regional businesses and attractions.
