Original Relight The Lamp Members Stepping Down

Two and a half years ago, a small but growing group of us banded together to show our support for the restoration of the Lamp Theatre.

After talking it over at mind-numbingly extensive length, we have decided to decline our position on the interim board of directors for the Lamp Theatre project. Due to the project’s time constraints and family and career obligations, we won’t be able to continue in our leadership roles.

Ultimately, we achieved the goal that we set for the organization over two years ago, which was to make sure the Lamp Theatre was revitalized. That process has begun, and we leave it in the very capable hands of the interim board.

Thank you for your support over the last few years. We respect your time and the trust you have placed in us.

We’ll be handing over the digital reins of the organization to a new crew. Things will probably look and sound different, but it’s all in support of the same worthy goal.

We still wholeheartedly support the success of the Lamp Theatre, and wish the interim board the very best of luck. We hope they know that we are deeply supportive of this project, and will continue to make ourselves available as committed volunteers.

If you or someone you know are interested in donating or volunteering, we’re sure they’d love to hear from you.

Thank you!
