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!

P.S. Kathleen started a new organization, the Norwin Area Arts Council, as a labor of love and another way to support the local arts community and the Lamp Theatre Project. If you’d like to support the NAAC, click here to subscribe to that email list. You can unsubscribe at any time.


New Years Resolution

Happy New Year 2013!

Happy New Year! You may be wondering what’s going on with the Lamp. Quite frankly, so are we! Things were put on hold, and we’re still in that holding pattern, due to circumstances beyond our control. As involved as we are, we’re really only cheerleaders on the sidelines. The coaches and players have been huddled up an awfully long time.

But we are still here, and still committed to restoring the crown jewel of downtown Irwin, PA. With that glorious goal in mind, we┬áresolve to stay positive and proactive in 2013.┬áNever say die! We’ve always battled naysayers, but nothing great ever happened from listening to them.

This goal will never come to fruition unless the Norwin community resolves to make it happen. With that in mind, what are YOUR hopes and dreams for the future of the Lamp Theatre?
