Don’t forget to take a look back on the transition of the Lind Pavilion. Thanks again to all donors, volunteers and contractors who shaped the Lind Pavilion into what it is today. The first full year of use boasted 34 creative workshops, three fundraisers, three wedding receptions, two graduation parties, a Mineral Point School District Planning Meeting, many Wisconsin Winter Writer’s events, an Arts Wisconsin Creative Conversation, and even a community yoga class series! And don’t forget the creative retreats, five custom retreats were hosted in the Lind Pavilion this year! And that’s just the Lind Pavilion; think about what else we’ve been up to around here! It’s been an amazing year, and we are looking towards the future with excitement. Join us on the 12th and help us celebrate a wonderful year!
