Chartered under the national office of the Izaak Walton League of America in 1947, the Miller Chapter is one of 23 within the Indiana Division. Our purpose is multifaceted, with concerns for land, air, water, and wildlife, and our resolve to maintain, protect, and restore those resources. Our clubhouse is one mile south of Lake Michigan on the Little Calumet River.
Amenities include a meeting hall, a members-only bar and limited gun range. We also enjoy a 21-acre tract used for picnics, boat storage, and a developing recreational harbor facility with additional boating facilities along the river.
From the Officers and Directors of the Miller Chapter (written by Fred Sansone)
As you may or may not know. On the evening of June 15th until the wee hours of the next morning our beloved clubhouse was destroyed by fire. Several investigators have been on the site but no official conclusive cause has been reported other than a tragic accident occurred there. PLEASE do not lend yourself to the rumors or accusations you may hear or have heard. They are all just the speculation of idle minds. Make no mistake, every effort to facilitate the rebirth of our club is in action. Permits have been applied for, demolition companies are submitting bids for consideration and soon a temporary trailer will be in place so some business can be conducted. An account at Centier Bank is being established so donations can be accepted. The bright side of this is NO ONE was injured in any way. Yes our hearts are broken at the loss of our precious club. But remember it is and always has been the people that make the Miller Chapter of the lzaak Walton League of America the great place it is and what it shall be again. I would advise all who can to start attending the general membership meetings
which will be held at Bass Pro Shop at 7:00 pm in their Community Meeting Room every 1" Tuesday of the month. I am sure much will be discussed at the meetings in the coming months. A Rebuild committee is being formed to begin this arduous task. Sure there are a million unanswered questions which will take some time to sort out as there are many issues to deal with. We have always been a strong, proud family of boaters, conservationists and outdoors people, all members of the Miller Chapter of the lzaak Walton League of America. We Will get through this.
