Cowboy Poetry November 12th SVB @ The Avery Series To Benefit Valley Oaks Seniors
Etna Fire Department Christmas Show December 3rd SVB @ The Avery Series To Benefit The Etna Fire Department
On behalf of the Scott Valley Lions Club, president Barbara Gussman hands Madeleine Ayres a check for $1000.00 to be used for renovating the costume shop at the Avery Theatre. Using all volunteer labor, the committee will reconfigure the current space in the Avery, adding shelving, lighting and hanging units to better organize the many costumes, props and supplies. The Etna Methodist Church volunteered a room in their facility to store all of the costumes until the renovation is completed. “This is a real community effort. The generosity of the Lions Club will make this long overdue dream a reality for the Avery,” said Ayres.
A New Roof for the Avery!
Thanks to the McConnell Foundation, the Avery Theatre will be weather tight for another generation. A generous grant made the renovation possible and the combined hard work of the board, funding agencies and local contractors, the historic Avery received a new roof in June. Thanks to all who worked on this project!
Roof Replacement Grant Received
The Scott Valley Theatre Company is pleased to announce the The McConnell Fund of the Shasta Regional Community Foundation has approved their grant application to the Avery Theatre for roof replacement. This sizeable grant will fully fund a major piece of the Avery renovation campaign which includes all aspects of the theatre building. “The board has prioritized many key projects to rejuvenate the Avery building which is fifty-five years old and, while still a beauty, definitely needs some updating and renovation,” said board president, Rick Anderson.
