The Egyptian Theatre Preservation Association announced they received a $2500 grant, which requires a 50% match, from the Historic Preservation League of Oregon that will be used to help fund a market/feasibility study for the theatre.
The historic theatre’s marquee will be repaired using a $3496 grant from the Coquille Tribal Fund.
Local fundraising is also up with 2012’s membership drive surpassing last year’s donation levels. Calendar sales continue. The calendars, featuring photographs of the theatre, are available at Charleytown in Charleston, Fat Cat Antiques and Cone 9 in North Bend; Oregon Wine Cellars and Antiques and Collectibles in Coos Bay; or online at the website (Coming Events page).
