                  brought to you by the Vermilion-on-the-Lake Historic Community Center

                                       with the support of our friends at
                                     the Lorain County Historical Society






New A/C installed & working! (No more melted wedding cakes)


The VOL (Vermilion-on-the-Lake) Historic Community Center pictured here circa 1940,
remains today one of the only wedding venue's still situated on Lake Erie's shore.
The 'VOL CLubhouse' as it has been called, demands only modest rental fees which
assist the effort to save and renovate this historic building.  A sharp eye will note the
48-star flag flying atop the flagpole, a pole that still today proudly displays the current
'Stars and Stripes' 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

If you are looking for a lakefront wedding reception hall, or a meeting place for as many
as 300 guests, that exudes character and charm while providing great views of a once
magnificent and still breathtaking lakefront setting, try the link on the left for the VOL HCC.

The Vermilion-on-the-Lake Lot Owners Association no longer owns the "Clubhouse".
In 2006, the Association formed the Vermilion on the Lake Historic Community Center
Charitable Trust, Inc. and transferred the property to the Trust by vote of the entire
membership.  Our revised mission includes community service, involvement in the security
of the area through our "Block Watch" program and other initiatives, and the general
promotion of the well being of the neighborhood and city.  Our Trustees also act as the core
Trustees for the VOLHCC Charitable Trust.  The VOL Lot Owners Association acknowledges
and thanks the Lorain County Historical Society for the guidance and support they afforded us
while we transitioned the property to the Charitable Trust.  We could not have done it without them.

The Vermilion-on-the-Lake Historic Community Center Charitable Trust is a
non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation formed under the laws of the State of Ohio as a service
organization.  Besides the restoration and operation of the Historic Community Center,
our mission includes providing a venue for community fellowship and discussion, as well as
providing education to our citizens about the history and culture of our area. We hope to
emphasize the historic nature of our unique building and encourage the businesses and
foundations tasked with preserving our heritage, to lend a hand in restoring the Historic
Community Center to its once glorious condition.

Volunteering:  We are a 100% volunteer run organization.  No employees.  No payroll.  All funds
go directly to operation, restoration, repair and upkeep, or to promote additional fundraising efforts.
