Volunteers from four Ken Garff dealerships on Tuesday began a three-day project to transform an outdated and run-down American Legion Hall in Lehi.

The project include all new paint, new kitchen appliances, as well as granite countertops and new flooring. The dealerships are also purchasing padded chairs that are more comfortable to sit on as well some other fun surprises.

It’s all part of Ken Garff’s “We’re ‘Hear’ for You” project that is committed to reach out to community groups and organizations and help them recover from the effects of the pandemic.

“Ken Garff employees want to show a small appreciation for our local veterans and all that they’ve done for our country,” said Chris Franks, general manager at Ken Garff American Fork. “By updating the space, we’re hoping veterans will have a more inviting and comfortable space to meet to promote active membership, participation and volunteerism that ultimately makes the American Legion more successful.”

The hall’s transformation will be revealed on July 6 during a Veterans Appreciation Night event.
