House gets extension
If you have been following the Opera House campaign, here is the latest update. The owners of the Opera House building have granted the Old Opera House Committee a 3-month extension on our buy-sell agreement as we have been gaining momentum and people are starting to respond by donating or purchasing shares. This also gives us more time to organize fundraisers. We are very excited that making the Old Opera House a community-owned facility is getting closer to a reality.
The other great news is that Freedom Northwest Credit Union has stepped in to assist and has offered a challenge to us and you; they will match the next 50 shares sold! They feel that if the surrounding area really wants this to be a success, that they will show their support and the credit union will match them! Donation and share forms can be picked up at either Freedom Northwest branch or emailed to you by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Stock purchases or donations can be made at Freedom Northwest Credit Union under Old Opera House Inc. in account # 21133 or sent to Gloria Taylor at 177 Lee Road, Harpster, ID 83552. Be sure to fill out the form!
So where are we? Checks for shares are coming in daily. The Board of Directors is now activated and with them comes additional staffing power! We hope that you have visited our Facebook page, Kooskia Opera House and “liked” it. In addition, there is a Go-Fund-Me set up. Check it out!
