Willow Lake Church to have sing-a-long July 14

Willow Lake Church will open its doors for a sing-a-long at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, July 14. All are welcome to enjoy this historic landmark and stay for a Subway sandwich box lunch following the sing-a-long.

Located on the prairie, Willow Lake Church was organized in 1874, and the building was built in 1899. This is an opportunity for all who have never known of this prairie treasure to view and enjoy a simply built yet beautiful rural church and learn more about the history of this area.

The sing-a-long and family activities provide the Friends of Willow Lake an opportunity to share this beautiful rural historic landmark with others and surface interested individuals and organizations that would be supportive of donating to support and preserve this historic landmark as an important part of our rural community.

To learn more about this historical landmark, call 507-629-3488, email or look up Willow Lake Church on Facebook.
