November 11, 2016, representatives from Church Mutual Insurance Company joined by representatives and command staff of area veterans and community groups, as well as Merrill Area Housing Authority Director Paul Russell, launched the “Raise The Flag Capital Campaign,” a fundraising campaign for the establishment of a new ‘Northwoods Veterans Post’ facility near the intersection of 6th and Johnson streets.

The effort’s ultimate goal is to raise an estimated $2.8 million for an all-new, 14,376-square-foot building for area veterans groups to call home.
