Liberty Theater News

The Liberty Theater restoration group will be sponsoring another walk-through this coming Tuesday, May 17. It will take place from 4 to 7 PM. There have been many requests for a repeat, especially from folks that had to work during the last one. Electrician Keith Williams from Local 246 has been busy improving the lighting. It is strongly suggested that old clothes and sturdy shoes or boots be worn. No sandals, flip-flops or open toe shoes... Sorry, due to insurance liability issues no one under the age of 18 will be permitted in the building.

The April 23 Clean-up day was very successful with a lot being accomplished by the dozen or so people that came to help. A dumpster was donated by Dailey's Refuse. Clean-up #2 is now being planned for Saturday, June 11. Mark it on your calendar. Your help is greatly appreciated. We weren't informed of the hours but the last one was from 10 AM to 2 PM.

A reminder was given for the baked chicken dinner being put on by theWHS Alumni Activities Committee on Wednesday, June 22. It's the Activities Committee's donation for the benefit of restoring the old theater. The dinner will be held from 4 to 7 PM. It's $10 per ticket. In addition to baked chicken there will be mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, dessert and beverages. Take outs will be available by calling 330-532-9811. The dinner will be held at the Alumni Center at 201 3rd St. The Liberty Theater group will be holding a Chinese Auction and 50/50 at the dinner. Tickets must be purchased in advance. There will only be 200 sold and they will be available at the walk-through on May 17, at Roberts Funeral Home, Center Pharmacy or by calling 330-692-2037. All proceeds go to the Liberty Theater restoration project.

Anyone wishing to make a donation toward the restoration project can do so by mailing it to Liberty Theater Association, P.O. Box 513, Wellsville, OH 43968. Donations are tax deductible. For more information contact Erin at 330-532-1569 or 330-692-2037. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

Had a good number of people at "Jack" performances ask about the Liberty and what's going on. Join in on the fun! Hope to see folks at the walk through tonite! A tremendous amount of hard physical work has been done since the last walk through! Want some functional exercise? Come help at the next one on June 11!!!
