The Windom Lions Club is finishing one of the largest projects to ever be donated to the city, and the nearly $350,000 shelter is already in use near Cottonwood Lake and will be called the Lions Club Pavilion.
“What started out as an idea, a thought, or a dream,” said Lions Club President Eric Haken, “is now a reality.”
Dirt work began in April of 2022, and the shelter is now nearing full completion, as it has already been used by Tegels Park visitors and for some smaller events including the recent Riverfest.
Fellow Lions club members Glen Francis and Stephanie Evers informed that the goal is to hand over the facility as a donation to the city and community, and that will happen as soon as a little missing steel in one corner of the building, and dividers for the restrooms are completed. Then the Lions will do a ribbon cutting and hand the city the keys.
