Jehovah's Witnesses at Roberts Stadium for the last time

It's the final year for one of Evansville's largest conventions at Roberts Stadium.

The Jehovah's Witnesses say that the city of Evansville has been a good central location for the convention.

Organizers say Roberts Stadium has been very user friendly for all of their attendees, families, senior citizens, and those who haven't traveled to the Tri-State before.

The convention has been held at Roberts Stadium for the last several years, and now a tentative closing date for the building has been suggested for early August.

The question is, will the convention stay in Evansville, with the debut of the new arena? Some organizers at the convention say they don't know what church leaders are planning yet, but returning to the river city would be fine with them.

Members say they won't find out the location of next year's convention until January.

We'll keep you posted.
