I hear consideration is being given for a name for our new auditorium. I really hope they do not put one individual‘s name on it. This beautiful project is the result of the work of hundreds of people: the school board, the Fine Arts Committee, the donors, the fundraisers and most especially those who voted to raise their taxes to pay for it. Naming it The Westby Fine Arts Theater would describe where it is and who worked to get it here.

I have served as one of the "sidewalk superintendents" by visiting the project almost daily. My reward has been a hard hat and several visits to the interior. I was awed by the huge stage (I think you could put the whole high school on it), an orchestra pit, a catwalk for lights and sound extending from wall to wall, hundreds of pieces of conduit pipe ready for electronics, and not a bad seat in the house. This is coming along wonderfully: the exterior is painted, the roof is on, and the entire floor should be done when you read this.

It will be a great community asset.
