Program – Craig Allebach introduced Nick Hauck, Managing Director of the Village at Winona updated the club on the progress of the Miller Sunset Pavilion.

Staying true to its history of Winona Lake the new Miller Sunset Pavilion is inspired after the original Billy Sunday Tabernacle and sits on the same land where the original tabernacle was located. The shape & style of the pavilion and colors & materials used resemble the original structure where hundreds of thousands of people would gather each summer and unite around a common belief.  The new Miller Sunset Pavilion looks to unite our community and offer access to amenities our community has been asking to have for many years.

The Miller Sunset Pavilion will not only be an ice rink in the winter months, but a year round venue hosting various different community events from concerts and jazz festivals to art fairs and weddings to a seasonal farmers market.

Next Week’s Program – Joel Miller with Essenhaus
