Julius W. Hegeler II awards $3 Million to David S. Palmer Arena.

DANVILLE, IL.- Julius W. Hegeler II is gifting $3,000,000 to the David S. Palmer Arena, to build a new “Ice Center” entrance on the south side of the facility and for the replacement of the Civic Center’s aging ice machinery.  At the Arena’s recent Board Retreat, the session opened with a letter from Julius W. Hegeler II confirming the $3Million bequest.
 
“The ice machinery is a decade past its lifetime expectancy.” states General Manager, Peter Blackmon. “We’re well beyond the routine repairs stage and the price of Freon for a system like ours has gone up exponentially. Mr. Hegeler’s gift acknowledges the civic center’s 37 year history of offering ice programming to our community; something which separates us from other communities our size.” Blackmon added.
The Arena was awarded a grant from the State of Illinois in August of 2014 with the funds just now being distributed. The $850,000 is to go towards much needed roof repair, renovations and upgrades and would leave little, if anything, for the ice machinery and additional construction. The funding by Julius W. Hegeler II would help maintain ice programming for years to come.
 
The gift is to be made once Julius W. Hegeler II “folds his wings”. “It is unfortunate, and I’m certain this applies to so many of his gifts throughout the community, that he won’t get to see the fruits of his generosity, which for us is a new beginning” finished Blackmon

The Danville Area Community College Ag Club, with the support of area agricultural organizations, businesses and individuals, takes this opportunity to announce Ag Day 2017.  Children and adults, including farmers, will find a variety of events available to them on FRIDAY, APRIL 21 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the DACC campus.

 

A special feature of the day is a barbecue luncheon that will be served from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Mary Miller Gym.  Carry-out lunches are not available.  The luncheon will consist of a pork barbecue sandwich, applesauce, baked beans, potato chips, and milk or Pepsi and will be served for 50¢—the price the farmer usually receives for these products after producing and selling them!  Additional donations are gladly accepted.  The lunch is served by the DACC Ag Club, DACC students and staff, and local FFA chapters.

 

Other items of interest during the day include a barnyard petting zoo, pedal tractor pulls for the children, tractors and farm equipment displays, and a tour through the DACC Greenhouse. Schools that are bringing classes to the petting zoo and activities should call 443-8768 to make reservations.

 

Local FFA Chapters, DACC, local ag businesses and community organizations will have exhibits in the Mary Miller Gym.

 The public is cordially invited.  There is no cost except for the farmer’s price luncheon.
