Thanks to the generosity of the Rotary Club of Vermilion members, we are building a spacious multi-purpose room with a Chapel. The views are stunning. The Rotary Room will be used for gatherings, events, community meetings and private functions. The room will seat 30, and tables and chairs have been ordered. There will be a small kitchen with sink and countertop. The Chapel will hold service on Sunday's.
