AMVETS Post 113 will have a new building that’s fully constructed ideally by the end of 2017.

Joe Suits, an AMVETS trustee, said the organization’s goal is to open the new building no later than February 2018, but hopefully sooner. The group currently rents a building located at 2525 N. State St., Bunnell.

Suits has been a trustee with Post 113 since 2008. He said the current building is cluttered with certificates all over the walls and that it’ll be nice to start from scratch.

“It can be our own building,” Suits said. “We can have more pride in it.”

AMVETS works to benefit the community by donating food and clothing to those in need, helping veterans through leadership and advocacy services and by providing scholarships to local high school student who are going to college.
