Located in former bank building in Weyauwega

The Dahlke Life Celebration Center has opened at 101 E. Main St. in downtown Weyauwega.

This 7,500-square-foot facility is the former Bank First building.

The updated venue will include a multi-purpose events hall, arrangement suites, business offices and audio and video capabilities.

Keller Structures was the architect and general contractor for the project.

Jon Dahlke, owner of Dahlke Funeral and Cremation Care, expressed gratitude to city officials and local residents for their support and willingness to work with him to offer this new venue to Weyauwega and surrounding communities.

“We want to continue investing in our community and provide services for grieving families to help honor, celebrate, and remember lives well-lived,” said Dahlke.

He noted that families’ needs and expectations are changing when it comes to celebrating the lives of loved ones who have died.

More families r want to host a reception or gathering after a funeral, complete with food and beverages.

Dahlke FuneralandCremation Care seeks to serve the community with options and hospitality – and has paid special attention to the details. This includes an entrance from the Life Celebration Center to the city’s community center, which will give families access to a commercial kitchen and a space for luncheons and gatherings.

“Our hope with Dahlke Life Celebration Center is to provide a welcoming and diverse setting so we can offer families a place to celebrate the life of a loved one, and in the near future, other significant milestones such as graduations, birthdays, weddings, retirements, anniversaries and more,” said Dahlke.

After two generations of serving area families in Weyauwega, Manawa, and the surrounding areas, Dahlke Funeral and Cremation Care is not only opening this new venue but also changed their name (formerly Cline-Hanson-Dahlke) and created a new logo.

Voie Funeral Home in Iola, which Dahlke purchased in July of 2020, will retain its name.

They are offering additional natural burial options and have recently invested in a new crematory.

All staff remains the same and Dahlke Funeral and Cremation Care will honor any existing prearrangements.

The Dahlke Life Celebration Center will hold an open house from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, June 25, featuring tours at 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Refreshments will
be served, and the public is welcome.
