With the second installment payment of $20,000 by the St Paul Rotary Club, the capital campaign of the St Paul Area Civic Center begins the next funding phase focused on individual and family donors. The initial phase, which primarily centered on the support of the surrounding business community, helped raise over $530,000 toward the St Paul Area Civic Center, approaching half of the project goal of $1,200,000. Rotary Club President Mike Horn hands St Paul Development Corporation officers Fred Meyer and Joe Mlinar the second $20,000 check toward the Club’s overall five year commitment of $100,000.
