MENOMONIE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The second groundbreaking ceremony in a local church's 143-year history triggers the start of a $1,500,000 expansion.
Members of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Menomonie recently gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony in the church parking lot. The expansion will include handicap accessibility, an improved gathering space, a library, and offices.
The only other groundbreaking ceremony the church has held was for its original construction in 1871. The expansion is expected to be finished before Christmas.
