The Oregon Trail Community Foundation is helping out the effort to revive the Goodhand Theater in Kimball with a $1,500 grant that has replaced the aged and rotted wooden awning at the theater.
Friends of the Goodhand Theater Secretary/Treasurer Jo Caskey says the money allowed installation of a new awning with an angled wooden base and metal sidings designed to avoid rain and snow accumulation.
Caskey says the original Goodhand sign was also renovated and repositioned on the awning, and marquis boards have been refitted for lighting. Caskey says thanks to the efforts of the local Rotary Club and a volunteer citizen group the theater has been preserved so movies can be shown every other week and it can remain a beloved piece of the city’s main street.
A fundraising raffle where a $50 ticket gives purchasers a chance to win a seven day Alaskan cruise for two is being conducted this month, the drawing to be held October 15th. Contact Caskey 235-3782 to purchase a ticket.
