The center plays a vital role in the cultural, artistic, and educational life of the Lake Vermilion community.
To our Friends of the Lake Vermilion Cultural Center
To Our Friends of the Lake Vermilion Cultural Center,
Our newsletter tells about the progress of our building project and the generous IRRR grant which has made this work possible.
We are thrilled to announce a major gift of $50,000 given in memory of the late Bernice Lanont Adams by her family. A full story of this remarkable woman, originally from Virginia, will be in our next newsletter.
Our plea now is for your help in furthering the work on the cultural center. An anonymous donor has promised a matching grant of $25,000 if we are able to raise that much by the end of January 2019. Is that an achievable goal? We think so, and ask your help.
If the 500 people who are on our contact list gave $50 each, we would reach that goal before the end of the year. Your donation will help us meet that goal.
Please consider your online donation by clicking on the Donate Today button, for a year-end tax-deductible gift. 100% of your donation will be given to LVCC and no credit card fees will be incurred by either you or LVCC. Please remember, naming rights are still available for several spaces in the building.
As always, we thank you for your generosity and patience. Our motto is “With patience, the mulberry leaf becomes a silken gown.” That is what we are finally achieving in Tower. It will add much beauty and service to our beloved community.
Mary Batinich, Chairman

Gifted to the LVCC by the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, we moved the grand old lady on November 1st, 2015, now known as St. Mary’s Hall (see video!), to her new home near the historic center of Tower near the harbor.
She is currently being restored and will be used for a wide variety of cultural and community activities.
