    Timber Lake Playhouse, the premier professional summer theatre of northwest Illinois, announced the 2021 inductees into the Timber Lake Playhouse Hall of Fame at the annual VIP Night prior to the opening of The Buddy Holly Story. The TLP Hall of Fame was established in 2008 and the first recipients were the TLP Founders. Since then, TLP has recognized former company members, staff, board members and outstanding supporters of TLP.
    The 2021 recipients were Robin Wilhelms Saar and The First State Bank of Shannon, Polo and Lake Carroll. Robin has served as a TLP Board member for several years and most recently was the President of the Board. She also was the driving force behind the Annual TLP Gala. The first Gala raised nearly $5,000 for the playhouse. This past year, over $45,000 was raised making the fourteen year total $417,840. Along with the support of her mom and dad, Jan and Omar Wilhelms, they have been long term supporters of the theatre.  “I am honored to be inducted into the Timber Lake Playhouse Hall of Fame and also have our business, First State Bank Shannon Polo Lake Carroll inducted,” said Saar. “It was my pleasure and joy to serve as Board member and President of the Board.”
    The award was presented by TLP President Michael Shore. “It is a great honor to present this award to Robin and the First State Bank,” said Shore. “First State Bank not only has been a major supporter of the Gala, but they have also supported TLP in many other ways.”
    Four generations of Saar’s family have supported Timber Lake Playhouse.  “My family and business thank you for the gift TLP has given to our community, “said Saar. “It is our responsibility as patrons and businesses to call upon each other in partnership to support our TLP. Our lives and our community’s youth, seniors, and area businesses are all enriched and blessed to have our own thriving theatre.”
    Also receiving an award at VIP night was Terrie Miller for her years on the TLP Board.
