Help Save the Midway
Hi Patrons of the Midway Drive In Theatre...
Things are progressing at the Midway..presently we're looking rather barren as the Storm Mangled Screen has been demolished and its remnants removed to make way for a replacement screen.
After investigating a replacement wood constructed tower and the present NYS Building Code we have decided upon a Steel Structured Screen and been in contact with Shelby Products of Ohio, builders of the vast majority of Drive Screen Towers in the USA. The have reserved a spot for us in their construction Calendar with a pretty firm commitment they can have a Screen up in September if we can come up with the Funding.
We were insured for the value of a wood tower but vastly under insured for a replacement Steel Tower. Our insurance Company has been very expediate and fair with their settlement with us. Our Capital Funds were about drained last season with the purchase of our new Barco 32B projector.
With the amazing support of the Community through donations and the Girls from Troop 10101 T-shirt sales, we have reduced the gap between Insurance recovery and projected costs to a doable figure with the continued help from the Community.
So many have reached out to us asking "will you rebuild", "how they can help", "where can we get a T-Shirt", "how do I make a donation".
We are committed to rebuilding and my Children have assured me the Midway will live on with its same traditions for many more years..and my Girls from Troop 10101 as well as the Cubscouts want Movies on the Big Screen for their Fall Events. We can get this down with continued support from the Community.
That being said our new order of T-shirts arrives in time for this weekend, with the following distribution plan.
Following our very successful Harborfest Weekend Fund Raising Event, where demand for our -I Helped Rebuild the Midway Drive In Theatre- Fundraiser T-shirts exceeded our Supply, We are pleased to announced a new supply and several additional -T-Shirt- Fundraiser sites over the next couple of weeks.
