Wellsville FCC Refuge Members Lend A Hand

First Christian Pastor Mark Blakely & members of Refuge
preparing to do some painting

Members of the Wellsville First Christian Church high school youth group known as Refuge continued their community service this past Saturday at the old Liberty Theater.  With paint & brushes in hand they helped with touching up the front of the long closed theater. 

Liberty Theater Renovation Roberts-Orr was painting the
front doors
The old movie house is now owned by the Potter Players Community Theatre group.  With plans to renovate and to reopen someday work on the project has lagged with the nation’s economic slowdown.  However, that doesn’t slow down the hopes of the Liberty Theater Renovation Project committee.  Presently they are doing what they can and Saturday’s effort was to spruce up the front of the place.  When funding comes available it will be the Wellsville area cultural center. 

Erin Robert-Orr is the Chairwoman of the Liberty Theater Renovation Project.  For more information on the project contact Mrs. Orr via e-mail at

Glad to see something done there. It looks like hell. They should either renovate it or tear it down and put it out of its misery

It's great to see some effort going into the theater - and I hope funding to complete the project is made available soon!
