At the April 26 Lions meeting, Kathy Boe introduced guest speaker Mindi Schmitz, executive director
of The Arts Center. Schmitz spoke about the expansion plans and capital campaign called Raising the Bar for the Arts.

The former Wonder Bar building, adjacent to The Arts Center, has been vacant for the past two years
and was for sale. This was an opportunity for The Arts Center to not to pass up, Schmitz said. Post-purchase, the building will be converted into a multipurpose space for arts centered around young people and the community. The goal of the campaign is $2 million, which includes acquisition, renovation and operating costs. For more information, contact Schmitz at, 701-251-2496 or
