Governor Larry Hogan Cuts Ribbon for Charlotte Hall Veterans Home’s New Roof
Roof Project Fully Funded by the Department of General Services

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today attended a Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the rooftop replacement project at Charlotte Hall Veterans Home in St. Mary’s County. Governor Hogan was joined by Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary George Owings III and Department of General Services Secretary Gail Bassette. The Charlotte Hall roof project was fully funded by the Maryland Department of General Services.

“The veterans and spouses who live at Charlotte Hall Veterans Home deserve a home that is comfortable and secure,” said Governor Hogan. “I am happy to be in St. Mary’s County today for this ribbon cutting, and am proud that we were able to provide the funds necessary to build this new roof.”

In addition to participating in the ribbon cutting ceremony, Governor Hogan spoke with residents at the home for lunch, and thanked them for their sacrifice and service to the country.

“The ribbon-cutting ceremony marks yet another improvement to Charlotte Hall Veterans Home and our commitment to serving those who served,” said Secretary Owings. “We are pleased Governor Hogan was able to join us today, and thank him for his commitment to Maryland’s veterans.”

Charlotte Hall Veterans Home, located on former military academy property, opened in 1985 and is Maryland’s only long-term care and assisted living facility specifically for Veterans and their eligible spouses. The Home has 454 beds and offers rehabilitative services, memory care, an on-site Veterans Service Officer, and much more. Last year, an on-site pharmacy was added for improved services to the residents. The replacement of the thirty one year old metal roofing, gutters, and downspouts cost just under $1 million.
