On Lake Lawn Resort could be months from full operation
Interesting that Mr. Wilkins comes to the table at this time (though I think I had read that he had done so months ago)....... then, why the delay until now? It certainly appears that Mr. Drescher has clearly demonstrated a positive direction and outcome in all the various projects and events that he has championed in the past years. That seems to be gold standard right there, IMO.
Bottom line: It is unfortunate that a historic icon such as Lake Lawn Resort (Lodge) lives in limbo due to situations and dynamics such as this.........
BTW........Hockey arena?? Largest in Midwest? That's a vision that may look good on blue print, but one wonders how realistic? Is that vision on the same track (no pun intended) and as grandiose as the Race Track next door....only to fall quietly by the way side? Was the marketing aspect and due diligence done in the Wilkins proposals? Or, did Mr. Wilkins propose to put the Hockey arena inside the race track arena??
Just askin'....; just plain confused and disappointed in the recent game-changer.
All the best to the City of Delavan, township of Delavan and Mr. Drescher and group. Lake Lawn Resort (Lodge) deserves good management.
On Drescher makes Lake Lawn deal
Congratulations and thanks to Mr.Drescher and the entire group. Lake Lawn embodies wonderful characteristics of an era in the area's history; it deserves to continue to do so. With new forward thinking, Lake Lawn Resort will be successful. I was fortunate to have spent my early childhood years living on the farm directly across from Lake Lawn (Lodge). I have fond memories of this icon and have been following the scenario. I am thrilled to learn of this news.

This is a gesture of true compassion. Thank you, Sir.
On Tallman House needs $2.5 million in repairs
Hey Madman 1961......thanks for noticing that I have asked 3 times.... I do think it behooves the Rock County Historical Society to find or form a task force to write these grants. Perhaps they ASK for volunteers, etc for a committee. Sorry, I cannot do so, as I do not live in WI, though I am a native. I have been involved with a similar 'cause' in MN, thus, my statements regarding 'grants', etc. Sure hope the RCHS finds a solution......I do think it is their job to somehow resolve it. Best Wishes.
Still asking here......would a task force or committee take charge and apply for GRANTS (if this home is listed on the historical homes-non profit 501-3C). There are many organizations and entities who need to donate to causes such as this......big $$ too. Local labor can still be used. I guess I would like to hear if the 'city' or whomever's in charge, has ever considered a committee to write GRANTS or any other options for that matter.
Now I am asking again..... what about having a task force engaged in writing GRANTS for these issues? Just wondering if this has been considered. I know of other (501-3C) non-profit Historical Homes who have done so and have rec'd huge monies for their cause. So, does anyone know if this has been considered??
If this home is registered on the list of Historic Homes (501-3C non-profit), perhaps a task force could look into writing various GRANTS. If acquired, these monies could certainly address the many needs of this landmark. There are many charitable entities out there, who give major money for 'non-profit' historical venues such as ths home. Just a thought.
