The community is invited to attend a meeting Wednesday night regarding the challenges facing the Gibson Theatre.

The purpose is to provide an update on the efforts to obtain a digital projector at the historic downtown theater.

The meeting will be held at the Sherman House following the Main Street Meeting which begins at 5:30 p.m. The theatre meeting is expected to begin approximately 6:30 p.m.

An online fundraising campaign is underway to help raise money for the projector. The website is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects.

Donations have topped $8,646 in the first 18 days of the online campaign. With only a dozen days remaining, the goal is to reach $15,000.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
