TLT receives $13,300 PCCF grant

Tryon Little Theater is the recipient of a grant in the amount of $13,300 from the Polk County Community Foundation’s Unrestricted Grant Committee.

The grant monies will be used for much needed improvements to TLT’s Sunnydale building, as well as the purchase of National Historic Registry plaques to display outside of the historical building.

Susie Kocher, a Sunnydale committee member and writer of the grant, sayidthe improvements will make the location more event-friendly, as well as address some safety issues.

“We need a railing for the front and side porch steps to make access easier and safer for the community, and event caterers will love the additions to the kitchen,” said Kocher.

“More stainless work and storage surfaces will make their lives simpler, and since we don’t have commercial kitchen status, a warming oven will make the world of difference.”

An audio system will enhance meetings and conferences, and the floor will undergo a total restoration.
