On Saturday, August 25, 2012, more than 140 people gathered on the Arms of Hope Boles Campus for the groundbreaking of the Paul and Mary Lou Winkler Hospitality Center. Each year the Boles Campus has over 1,000 visitors, mostly volunteers, many of whom will now stay in this facility upon its completion. These visitors include church, college, business and other volunteer groups or families of our residents who visit the Boles Campus and need a place to stay. The new 6,200 square foot building will have four bunkrooms and four hotel rooms. There will be a common area for games, activities and relaxation. There will also be an apartment for a hospitality center director. The building will be located in close proximity to Arms of Hope’s ROPES course, swimming pool, gymnasium and dining room. The building’s location, size and proximity to the other facilities not only make it ideal for groups completing service projects on our campus, but also for group retreats. Construction of the building is expected to be completed in June 2013.
