Last night the G.A.R. Hall was ranked as cause #115. Today it's ranked at #87. So, people out there must be voting. Please continue to do so. And, if you haven't yet, it would mean a lot to their community if you could just take a few seconds, follow the link above and place a vote for this cause. $50,000 will go a long way to restoring this piece of American History. Thank you.
