In regard to your front page story on the Paramount and Bill Hardacre, you are right on! There are two icons, the theater and Bill. What a blessing to this community. There have been many volunteers involved in saving the Paramount over the past 25 years but Bill and Ann Hardacre were there from the start , each day, every day. Some of us certainly helped, but we did our part then moved on, the Hardacres were there for the long haul and gave their heart to ensure this unique community treasure would survive.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Paramount were debt free. The board has done a magnificent job the last few years and they have their cost in control — except, the burden of the debt, which was incurred during the restoration.
And what a tribute to Bill Hardacre and his dream. I encourage all your readers to join in a celebration of Bill's life by donating to the Paramount Heritage Foundation. Big or small donations all will make a difference. Pulling together we can all make a dream come true.
