McConnellsburg VFW Post 655 donated $1,000 to the Mc- Connellsburg Alumni & Friends Association, which was represented by Kathy Kendall. Kendall announced that the association plans to use the money for the general maintenance and upkeep of the Mc- Connellsburg Community Building. Specifically, a new propane heating and air-conditioning system is being installed to replace a defective oil furnace. The new system will also allow the building to be heated or cooled only when the building is in use. In addition to this improvement, more efficient lights are being installed in the gym because the current fixtures are only lighting to 23 percent of their capacity. These enhancements will preserve the history of the old McConnellsburg

High School building and ensure that it will continue to be used as a community center.
