Tabor College to dedicate newest residence hall

Harms Residence Hall at Tabor College will be officially dedicated at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 27.

The public is welcome to attend the dedication and ribbon cutting. This event was rescheduled from February due to a snowstorm. The 16-unit residence hall is located at 502 E. B St.

Following the ceremony and ribbon cutting, guided tours of the facility will be available for the public.

The building was made possible by a donation from North Newton physician Wilmer Harms to honor the memory of his late wife, Esther. A long-time supporter of Tabor, Harms has contributed his time, treasure and talents to the school.
