Remodeled barn open house to raise money for Cedar Valley Hospice

Posted: Updated:

A four-story barn located just north of Bremer is a labor of love for the Mummelthei and Lageschulte families.

"My son moved on to this acreage about ten years ago, and the original owner's son decided it would be cool to re-do this barn. So together, they teamed up and re-did this barn. They fixed it, roofed it, sided it, put new windows in it and fixed it up so that we could use it," said Deb Mummelthei.

The remodeled barn is mainly used for family functions, including birthdays and graduations. But on Sunday, October 13th the families are opening the barn to the public to raise awareness and money for Cedar Valley Hospice, which provides support to terminally ill patients and their families.

"Four years ago a real dear friend of ours, would be my son-in-law's mother, died of cancer. We were all very close to her, and we used hospice," said Mummelthei.

The fundraiser is from 1 to 5 p.m. and includes a tour of the four-story barn, music, refreshments, hay rides, a petting zoo and an antique tractor show. The cost is $5 with all proceeds going to Cedar Valley Hospice.

"This is a one time event, and if you want to see this barn and partake in a family afternoon, this is the time to do it," said Mummelthei.

The barn is located at 1766 180th Street in Bremer. From Highway 218, turn onto C33, then turn on Ivory Avenue and go north for about one mile.
