TOWER- This year’s Midsummer fundraiser will have both a new look and a look back since the fundraiser started 12 years ago. Midsummer will be held on Saturday, June 15, with a dinner and silent and live auction at the Lamppa Civic Center, followed by entertainment at the Lake Vermilion Cultural Center across the street.

The cultural center, featuring classic red doors just like the entryway to the original St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, which was built in 1889. The building was moved nearly 10 years ago to its current location on Main St. It has been under restoration ever since and is nearing completion, hopefully in 2025. Thanks to a recent IRRRB Grant, the interior of the Halunen Lobby is being finished as well as the Abrahamson art gallery in the northeast corner of the building.

This year’s major fundraiser for the LVCC will be held on Saturday, June 15 and will feature the final program written and directed by board member Janice Kimes (pictured above), who has created wonderful musical programs over the past 12 years. Featured this year will be stars from the past, including Steve Solkela, Deb Prutsman, Linda and Ryan Bajan, Scarlet Stone, and this year, a delightful dance to a Finnish waltz featuring JoAnn Halunen with Soudan residents Joe LaForte and Randy Winkler. Dinner speaker will be representative Grant Hauschild, who has some exciting news to share with us. The silent auction promises a wonderful variety of items and and the live auction features the ever popular and entertaining Steve Solkela.
