A fundraising effort is underway to help with construction of a facility to benefit veterans and their families. Truman VA has plans to build a Fisher House in Columbia.
Stephen Gaither is Chairman of the Board for Friends of Mid-Missouri Fisher House. The 16-suite home is currently slated to open in 2022. It will cost approximately $6 million. Gaither says his organization is trying to raise half of that. There’s a fish-fry fundraiser planned at the Sunrise Beach American Legion September 13th.
