A good bit of news from the Rosendale Theatre: It will receive funds to install a wheelchair lift.
The donation is courtesy Intuit, producer of small-business software, announced Monday on its website. The announcement:
(Managing Director Ann) Citron believes that the Rosendale Theatre is essential to bringing people into town as a destination. “We have quite a lot of seniors. We have a group of kids who go to school not too far from here, and many of them are in wheelchairs,” she says.
To make the venue more accessible, Citron recently turned to Intuit’s Small Business Growing Strong campaign.
“We are in the process of raising funds to put a wheelchair lift in — our theater has four steps up — so we can be ADA compliant and so we can serve all our patrons,” she explained in her entry. “We are still in need of more funds to make our wish come true.”
Intuit recently announced that this particular plot would have a happy ending: Citron’s wish is being granted.
No word yet on when the actual lift will be installed, but this is a solid development nonetheless.
