Here’s a great feel good story about the Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg. The community theater was in jeopardy of closing their doors because a new furnace was needed. A fundraiser was planned for August 5 at the Mechanicsburg Club to hopefully raise $2,000.
A local business man, Homer Hetrick, President of L.B. Smith Ford-Lincoln, read about the non-profit theater’s plight this morning and within a few hours the theater was depositing a $2,000 check to cover the cost of the furnace replacement! This was a case of paying it forward by Mr. Hetrick, who has never even attended a play at the Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg.
Remco, Inc., of Mechanicsburg, will be doing the removal and installation of the new furnace at no charge! Yet another good Samaritan! The theater is getting a new Lennox furnace to replace the old furnace which was no longer safe to operate.
The fundraiser will still go on. As with any non-profit, there is always a need for money. In the theater’s case, a tree removal project moves to the top of the list!
