Features > Milwaukee, WI (September 2009) > Lake Park Lutheran Block Party & Solar Panel Dedication


Our church, Lake Park Lutheran, decided to install solar panels while replacing the old slate roof. They began in July and at the September Block Party the panels were dedicated (to be powered up shortly thereafter).
