Huh, so why is the date in "Aprl"?

Oh, perhaps because that "I" is lying on the sidewalk beneath the Liberty Theater marquee?

Yes, folks, our marquee needs an upgrade. The letters are worn and yellowed, and the tracks that hold them are failing in various places. Help beautify Walnut Street, Murphysboro's main drag! Please donate between now and April 30.

Your donation will help buy 300 marquee letters (at slightly more than $1 per letter) and 10 tracks to hold them (at an average of $8.79 per track, top and bottom tracks being different from middle tracks). $10 buys 9 letters, $25 dollars buys almost three tracks - see the difference you've made every time you travel down Walnut Street!

We haven't installed the new tracks yet, but this very special message was requested (anonymously) by our largest donor to the campaign. Thanks again everybody!

(OK, doing this again as an official update rather than a comment...)

Thanks for all your donations! We ordered the letters and tracks this week, so hopefully it won't be long before they're installed - we'll post pictures here when they are. Thanks again!
