Union Bank & Trust donated $10,000 to assist the revitalization efforts of the historic Bonham Theatre. The funds, which will be disbursed over a 2 year period, will help the non-profit group reach their fundraising milestone to begin renovations.
“Fairbury has a rich history, and the Bonham Theatre is a key part of that” said Jen Walton, Branch Manager. “With the support of the entire community, the Theatre can once again be an active part of Fairbury’s downtown area.”
Debby Ebke, Treasurer of the Bonham Theatre Project, stated, “We’re very encouraged by the support of Union Bank & Trust, and all of our area businesses. By coming together, we are truly a stronger community.”
