To the Editor:

I recommend everyone keeps their eyes on the Bennington Performing Arts Center (BPAC), the home of Oldcastle Theatre on Bennington's Main Street! The BPAC offers remarkable opportunities for almost all ages to experience — from our students' drama clubs, to interesting lectures, movies, concerts, and professional theater... all amazing opportunities particularly for our size community!

I recently attended a wonderful evening at BPAC's Gala Fundraiser, where money was being raised for the theater's badly needed new roof. Besides delicious food and a cash bar, the foot stomping, superlative music of Matt Edwards and his band Buck2Fifty was enjoyed by all! Tax deductible contributions to fix the roof are still very much needed! If interested to learn more about this opportunity to donate for the new roof, please contact Chuck Putney, crputney@comcast.net, chairman for the vital roof fundraising campaign. Please help if you can!

Liz Putnam,
