The Lake Vermilion Cultural Center is sorry that we must inform the community and supporters that the LVCC Midsummer event, planned for August 28, will be canceled. New guidance from the MN Department of Health and the CDC regarding holding indoor events was released and necessitated this decision. The most recent COVID-19 numbers pushed St. Louis County into the high risk category where large indoor events were not recommended. The LVCC board voted unanimously to cancel the event for 2021.
The LVCC will miss the time to enjoy the connections of friends and supporters over dinner, the celebration of Norway with our musical program, the fun of the silent and live auctions, and our annual opportunity to raise funds for the Lake Vermilion Cultural Center. The LVCC has now had to cancel 3 major fundraising events due to COVID-19: Midsummer 2020, Midsummer 2021, and a fundraising trip to the Nordic Countries.
For those who have sent their money in for tickets to the event, the LVCC asks you to consider making this a donation as we move forward to renovate the historic St. Mary’s Episcopal Church to serve as a cultural and community center for the Tower-Soudan and Lake Vermilion area. An LVCC board member or volunteer will be contacting those who made a reservation. Questions may be directed to board members or sent to.
Community members and supporters are strongly encouraged to make a donation at this time. We are currently working on finishing the exterior of the building and are eager to complete more work on the inside. You may donate on our website:or by mailing a check to P.O. Box 659, Tower, MN 55790.
Please watch for new programs and events which will be held following the health guidelines at the time: indoors, outdoors, or on Zoom.
