Palace Theatre Receives $15,000 Donation from Members First Credit Union
The Palace Theatre has announced it has received a $15,000 donation from Members First Credit Union toward its Second Century Campaign designed to fund its capital campaign. The fund will be used for much needed theatre improvements and safety upgrades.
"The Palace Theatre is grateful for the generosity of Members First Credit Union, a consistent, long-time supporter of the Palace Theatre. Members First Credit Union's commitment assists the Palace Theatre Trust in maintaining a community-oriented center for the exploration and presentation of theatre, music, and dance," stated Peter Ramsey, Palace Theatre President.
In dedication ceremony held on April 4, 2014, a plaque commemorating Members First Credit Union's donation was attached to the left alcove of the theatre.
Built in 1914, the Palace Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Palace Theatre is a nonprofit performing arts center that hosts its own professional company, youth and teen program and presenting acts. It is committed to achieving its mission through preserving the historic facilities of the theatre, responding creatively to the cultural and entertainment needs of the community and governing in a fiscally responsible and strategic manner.
