November, 2012 Thank you Alleghany Foundation for your generous grant of 1.5 million dollars for the restoration of the Historic Masonic Theatre. This grant is a step toward the revitilization of a Highlands landmark. Additional fundraising will be needed to fully recognize the dream but this grant from the Alleghany Foundation is a huge step forward in "Saving the Masonic".
"Save the Masonic" Community Campaign Launched, Summer 2012. Alleghany Highlands Community comes together to restore a beloved historic landmark.
"The Masonic Theatre Preservation Foundation's mission-to restore the most grand building in our community, and it is indeed the heart of our community. Our organization formed because we felt that it would be an absolute travesty if we lose this asset, and as time continues to pass, the building continues to deteriorate. In this case, things do not improve with age. We have and will continue to do everything that we can to avoid that result." Meade Snyder, vice president, Masonic Theatre Preservation Foundation, June 2012
