Military & Veteran Dedicated Areas
Butler has several areas dedicated to military service members and veterans. Butler renovated one of its patios to honor veterans with funds received from a Butler Foundation grant. The Foundation gave nearly $125,000 to fund seven different projects. The patio, renamed “Veterans Square,” was chosen as one of those projects. The newly repainted, reroofed and refurnished patio is at Butler of El Dorado. Additionally, a veterans memorial plaque was attached to a limestone rock and placed in the flowerbed near the patio.
“We want our veterans to feel a sense of belonging,” said Amy Cyphers, VA Benefits Coordinator for Butler Community College. “The sacrifice given by all men and women of the past, present and future deserves to be honored. This is such a selfless act given by all military members.”
There is also a dedicated space in the 5000 building in Andover.
