WATERMAN – Members of the Waterman Lions Club are spearheading the construction of a pavilion at Lions Park in Waterman.

According to club President Shawn Blobaum, construction will start imminently.

He expects the project to be completed in time for the organization’s annual Antique Tractor and Truck Show and Tractor Pull, collectively known as Waterman Lions Club SummerFest. The date is set for July 21.

Funding for the pavilion comes from the Lions Club, a grant from DeKalb County Community Foundation and funds from the Carl Olson legacy, which is administered by the village of Waterman for the benefit of the park. Mike Nelson Construction in Shabbona will manage the project.

The building will be located west of the shelter house next to the skate park. The club expects to use the pavilion as a bandstand and stage during the summer festival.
