Maplewood Barn Holds Theatre Fundraiser
COLUMBIA - The Perlow-Stevens Gallery hosted a Tuesday night fundraiser for the reconstruction of the Maplewood Barn Community Theatre.
Nealy 50 donors toured the gallery. The gallery presented a painting by Joel Sager,a local artist, of what the construction of the barn might look like.
"It's such a wonderful piece of our history as well as a resource for everyone in the community," says Vicky Riback Wilson.
Riback Wilson says her family has been involved with the Maplewood Barn since it opened in the 1970s.
The new barn will be in Nifong Park. Construction begins in August.
Riback Wilson says the City of Columbia contributed $200,000 for the reconstruction. Maplewood officials say they want donors to match that amount.
