CROSBY - The Bank of Tioga is excited to announce the completion of a two-year gift of $5,000 to Meadowlark Arts Council for the Dakota Theater in Crosby. The funds were used to replace the ballast on the projector.
“We are very appreciative of this generous gift from The Bank of Tioga. Our total project cost was $7,000, so this donation made a huge impact,” said Desiree Prochazka of Meadowlark Arts Council.
The Meadowlark Arts Council is a non-profit organization with the mission to promote the arts and humanities in Divide County. A volunteer board of directors operates the council, with a separate management committee taking care of the Dakota Theater.
With the purchase of the Dakota Theater, as well as cash donations, labor contributions and a number of grants, the council has been able to help make significant improvements to the facility over the years.
The theater was originally built in 1938 and is open Friday, Saturday and Sundays. It is also the home to community meetings and youth activities. To learn more about the current showings visit their facebook page.
