PLATTSBURGH — Area Rotarians and Plattsburgh State students are coming together this week to help restore the Strand Theatre during the college’s spring break.
Colin Read, Plattsburgh State professor and organizer of the project, said such efforts to restore areas of the local community that have historical and cultural relevance is important if the city wants to attract and retain young professionals or college students.
“Young professionals really demand this kind of stuff, so it’s nice to take the future of our community into our own hands,” Read said. “We want the young people to stay here, so that’s why doing things like this is important.”
