Machias Savings Bank contributes to Grange venue Renovation Fund
LAMOINE – The Machias Savings Bank recently presented Lamoine Community Arts (LCA) with a gift donation of $2,000 to the Grange Renovation Fund. LCA is in the second year of a three-year capital improvement campaign to renovate the century old Lamoine-Bayside Grange Hall located on Lamoine Corner. The Grange is LCA’s primary venue for its performances and other arts events (music, visual arts and dance.) The arts group has already made the hall suitable for year-round use by insulating and ventilating the building. Theatrical lights have been added and the electrical system has been upgraded.
Projects planned for the next phase include constructing an ADA approved entrance ramp, replacing back and side entrances and the installation of an additional lavatory. The donation from Machias Savings Bank will be put towards the financing of those projects.
Lamoine Community Arts is a not-for- profit organization of volunteers dedicated to providing opportunities in the performing and visual arts for the enjoyment of Lamoine and surrounding communities.
