Announcing

After reviewing the Governor's recommendations, we are scheduled to reopen on Sunday, June 28th at Noon with our 9th Annual Membership Cookout on the museum lawn. Our members are the most important ambassadors we have in the community. Please join us so we can thank you for your support in person! We’ll provide the burgers, hot dogs, water, and lemonade. Please bring a side dish and/or dessert to share.

Please RSVP online using Eventbrite if you plan to join us so we can establish proper distancing protocols (or call 219-390-9423). We’ll be outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, but please bring your own protective wear if desired. We look forward to seeing you and sharing our progress, and giving you a sneak peek at all that is to come in 2021. Thank you for your steadfast support and partnership in preserving Cedar Lake history.

If you are unsure of your membership status, please contact us at 219-390-9423.
