Tupper Lake Arts Council donates $10,000

TUPPER LAKE — The newly revitalized Tupper Lake Arts Council has donated $10,000 to support the conversion of the historic State Theater’s movie projection from film to digital format.

Grants and donations have led to a substantial portion of the needed funds.

In addition, the Arts Council has issued a challenge to Tupper Lake individuals with the promise that it will match any donation up to an additional $5,000.

It was a logical step for the Arts Council to offer these funds to allow the theater, built in the early 1900s, to continue as a historical and cultural asset to Tupper Lake, officials said in a news release.

In the 1990s, Tupper Lake Arts Council inherited the remaining funds from Tupper Lake Presents Inc.

“Through careful stewardship,  TLAC has been able to preserve enough funds to offer this contribution to the cause,” the release said. “This move is seen as one which honors the intentions of the original members of Tupper Lake Presents Inc. to support this precious asset to the community.”

Nori’s event to benefit Joy to the Children

SARANAC LAKE — On Sunday, Aug. 11, Nori’s Village Market in Saranac Lake will donate 10 percent of their daily proceeds to Lake Placid Center for the Arts’ Joy to the Children Benefit.

Joy to the Children is held annually at the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa. This year, the benefit is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 5.

Proceeds from Joy to the Children go directly to promoting and providing children’s programming for area youths.

Center for Writing receives IP funding

SARANAC LAKE — The Adirondack Center for Writing received $2,000 from International Paper to publish chapbooks of writing by adult literacy students participating in the Adirondack All Write! Program.

The Adirondack Center for Writing worked with the New York City institution Symphony Space to bring their All Write! literacy program to the North Country.
