It’s official!  Thanks to the generosity of Larry Ward, the Save the Massac committee is now the proud owner of the Massac Theatre.  Exactly four years to the day from our first meeting as concerned citizens, Larry Ward presented the key to Lisa Gower, President and members of the Save the Massac committee.  “We are forever grateful to Larry for everything he has done,” Gower said.  “Our next step is to start raising funds to fix the water leak and start working on the interior and the marquee.”  Committee Member, Tish Lewis said, “it worked out exactly the way it was meant to”.  Now the real work begins for our group.

Thank you committee members, Massac Theatre supporters, and Larry Ward.

See you at the movies!
