Community gathers for Algoma Performing Arts Center events

By Tim Kowols

 

The Algoma Performing Arts Center is proving to be a true asset for the community. Built in 1935 thanks in part to special programs created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Algoma Performing Arts Center went under a major $250,000 renovation in 2008 to preserve the structure used for school performances as well as traveling acts. In 2014, a private-public partnership was formed to ensure Algoma would be able to experience the arts in their own backyard. Algoma Superintendent Nick Cochart says that collaboration is a big reason why the Algoma Performing Arts Center is thriving.
