      Live at J.C. Lauber – South Bend on Purpose Season 3

      On June 25th we are continuing Season 3 of South Bend on Purpose with a live conversation in and about the newly renovated J.C. Lauber building in the East Bank neighborhood. This season we're hosting a series of live events to tell the stories of people who are betting on South Bend by investing new purpose into old spaces, whether that's an old industrial building or a once lively plot of land; people whose internal purpose has manifested itself into a physical part of our city – the streets, parks, buildings, and restaurants of South Bend. People like Frank Perri, a longtime developer in and around East Bank neighborhood, who in 2016 purchased the J.C. Lauber building and this month plans to fully re-open the building with Citywide Liquors on one side and an eponymous pizza restaurant on the other. J.C. Lauber was a prominent maker of specialty metal products in South Bend for much of the 20th century, including "galvanized iron work, sheet metal and canopy for the Palace Theatre, now known as the Morris Performing Arts Center." Our live conversation will take place inside the yet-to-be-opened pizza restaurant and will feature co-hosts Jacob Titus and Dustin Mix alongside Frank Perri and other partners in the project. --- South Bend on Purpose is a podcast hosted by Jacob Titus and Dustin Mix. In Season 2 we interviewed a diverse group of people, including Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Shaun Henderson, Kareemah Fowler, and Jason Miller, about why they continue to make the decision to live and work in South Bend.
