Combine text from two or more cells into one cell after a formatted date

I am attempting to create a spreadsheet to create source citations for my genealogy. Everything works great until I try to "& &" after a formatted date. I am forced to split my citation across multiple cells, but it makes for bulky exporting of my citations. Is there a way to bring columns V and Columns W together in the example spreadsheet that I included?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
