The resurgence of our beloved theater follows years of fund-raising and volunteer efforts. That we are now reopened and once again presenting classic and family movies, on-stage entertainment and events that support our community is thanks to this widespread and enthusiastic support.
The association will be holding its annual meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 16, at the theater in downtown Coos Bay. The meeting, which will be preceded at 1 p.m. by an organ concert and followed by a free, members-only movie screening, will feature an update on currently completed construction, a review of what’s left to do, and Kara talking about where we are heading with entertainment at the Egyptian. While we rejoice in all that’s been accomplished in bringing our wonderful theater to its current state, there remains a long list of tasks for us to face in the months ahead.
We urge members of the community to join the association. Our board members include Helen Doving, Anella Dumas, Alan Ellis, David Engholm, Kathy Erickson, Laura Fisher, Kathy Henry, Lee Littlefield, Paul Quarino, Bill Richardson, Susan Watson and me. These board members, along with our executive director, speak for the Egyptian and welcome any questions you may have about the rewards we are enjoying now and the challenges that remain ahead.
Dedicated work and financial support from members, individuals, businesses and foundations have brought us this far. We will always have a ways to go as a nonprofit, volunteer organization. We want to take this opportunity to thank this wonderful community for its support, and to encourage you to join us in our future endeavors by becoming members of the Egyptian Theatre Preservation Association.
