The Vincennes Boat Club is breaking ground for their new facility at Pearl City along the Wabash. Club President Darin Foster says concrete is being poured today.
It was 2015 when the city of Vincennes deeded Kimmel Park, the former home of the Boat Club, to Vincennes University. VU has since been working on major renovations at the park. As part of the agreement for the boat club losing it’s home, Vincennes provided a 99 year lease of land at Pearly City to the club. City revolving loan funds and VU donations are helping to pay the cost of construction.
Foster thanks VU for helping in the permitting process and Ellerman Construction for donating time and equipment for the project.
Foster hopes the 30 by 40 structure will be finished this summer. The club is accepting new members. If you want more information, call 812-910-1322.
