Remember, that "year" is nine months long and has about as many vacation days and holidays as most people get in a real year. Kinda changes the perspective of $45,000.......

Why all the skepticism and naysayers? Isn’t this latest, greatest New Newcomb deal right in line with “Building for Quincy”? Who cares if this $89 million bond referendum (which will actually cost the taxpayers about $133 million in debt service) is nothing but a sham? Remember, it’s “For The Kids”. Fancy new buildings do such a wonderful job teaching kids. Just ask the soon-to-be enriched architects,…

I'd like to see a spreadsheet on the city's payback. Seems to me we would be better off selling the lot to the highest bidder at auction. Then we get the property tax and sales tax on any construction with out anymore investment. The city needs to stay out of the business world as their track record is not great. This property is not costing the city anything but the mowing so there is no…

Quincy Community Theatre gives to The Sammy Fund

Theatre sold purple wristbands during the recent production of "Wanda's World"

QUINCY, ILLINOIS, February 5, 2013—Quincy Community Theatre thanks its patrons for their generous donation of $277 to The Sammy Fund.

            The money was raised through the sale of purple wristbands featured in the theatre’s regional premiere of Wanda’s World, a brand-new musical about a young girl named Wanda and her rocky start at a new school. Each bracelet displayed the saying “NOT EVERYONE EATS CHEESE,” a phrase throughout the show carrying a strong anti-bullying message: despite our differences, we should all be treated with respect.

            While children were excited to buy a bracelet like those worn by the actors, QCT was happier to give back to an outstanding fund that has supported its own students throughout the years. Through community donations, The Sammy Fund provides youth access to worthwhile activities in our community by opening doors to participation for children whose opportunities are limited. This incredible mission means supporting groups that maintain and enhance community betterment, as well as those that provide artistic, leadership, and humanitarian opportunity for young people—groups like QCT.

“We’re glad that these young people were able to use their unique talents to support a fund that gives so much support to other young people,” says Student Theatre Director Brandon Thomsen. “It’s wonderful to see them coming together and building a healthy community both onstage and off.”

The money is to be presented to The Sammy Fund this February in the lobby of the Oakley-Lindsay Center.
