I mentioned in an earlier post that the theatre I am working for here in Droset had racked up a $1,000,000 debt in order to make it the amazing space that it is. For the past three summers DTF has thrown benefits to raise money from all the generous people who love us. After the one thrown this summer we still had a little over $750,000 of debt. However, after 7 years of trying to pay off the debt the president of the board convinced the bank to forgive the whole thing.


How does this happen? I have no idea. All I know is that it is the most amazing thing that could have happened for us this year. Our mission of saving the theatre is over and it changes everything we do here. From now on, all donations made to us actually go to us, and not straight to the bank. We all know that the theatre will be here without a doubt next summer. Maybe our budgets will be even be better.

It's so amazing to me that 7 years after the loan was given, the people here have seen the theatre really is worth saving. It seems that they have enough faith in us and we have proven ourselves enough that the bank made a $750,000 donation to us. Wow.

Thanks Dorset! You won't be sorry.
