Buckhannon Community Theatre board member Risé Straight Hanifan presents Mayor David McCauley with a $10,000 check from the organization towards a $25,000 total commitment for naming rights for the lobby of the Colonial Theatre. The lobby will be named in honor of BCT founding member Jim Knorr III who passed away in 2018. ‘It’s to recognize BCT in the community but also to recognize Jim Knorr’s invaluable contribution to BCT and also to the Buckhannon community,’ Hanifan said. The BCT will raise an additional $5,000 a year over the next three years to meet the $25,000 total. The City of Buckhannon is renovating the Colonial Theatre to be a community space on Main Street.
