Congressman Ami Bera, as promised, visited the Veterans Community Center on August 9th. The Center is located at 6921 Sylvan Rd, Citrus Heights, and is the site of the original Sylvan School described in this website.
As an appreciative crowd gathered, Dr Bera spoke of the appreciation for sacrifice he had for our Veterans and how we need to lead by example. He then presented a check for 8.2% of his pay for the month of July, giving Veterans Golf Park Founder Jim Rounsavell a check for $1189! The funds will be used for continued upgrading of the building and facilities on the recently acquired Veterans Community Center. What a great gesture!

James Newton Rounsavell is the Founder of Veterans Golf Park for Disabled Vets. Jim is a life long golfer and began to realize that golf could help disabled vets with PTSD and TBI, two very degrading but all too common syndromes that affect our Vets. This site seeks to make others aware of the benefits that can be derived, and creates hope for the thousands of veterans that could use help. Please help us spread the word!
