Raid the Roof!

We need a new roof and we need your help!

The Ohnward Fine Arts Center is now in it's 11th season and it is now time to replace the roof on the entire building.  I know this does not seem like a glamorous fundraiser, but it must be done!

We rely on the generous donations of our business partners and patrons to meet many of our expenses. As a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations to Ohnward are tax-deductible. We are deeply grateful to all those who have given so generously in the past, strengthening Ohnward and ensuring its vitality in this wonderful community.

Our Next Event: Church Basement Ladies

July 14 and 15 at 7PM and July 16 at 2:00 PM

Event Image

Church Basement Ladies, has been playing to sellout crowds for years. Now is your chance to see it! The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In "Church Basement Ladies" we meet the pastor, three main kitchen cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation by preparing and serving the food. Like any great kitchen, problems are solved here as well. We see the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and, of course, a wedding. The stave off potential disasters, have fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on due course. This musical comedy based on recipes, food, and change in the church is funny, heart warming, and down to earth. It will bring back memories of many people you know from churches everywhere.
