Let me introduce you to Melissa MacDonald. She is the contractor doing the majority of the work at the Fine Arts Theatre. Not only has she been busting her butt to fix every rotten, moldy, loose bit that has been uncovered at the theater, but she also looks like a superhero. I know she looks like a normal person in the photo, but I'm not kidding you! She is the first woman I have ever met who looks like she might be able to lift a building onto her shoulder and fly away with it. Okay, I'm a little prone to exaggeration, but if you met her, you'd want her on your team. And considering the amazing amount of work that they've had to do there, I think she's almost had to be a superhero.
Oh, and that guy in the picture; if you haven't seen him before, that's Steve Trumble, owner of Fine Arts Theatre Place. I'll talk more about him at another time. In the meantime, if you see Melissa around the theater, yell hello and tell her to keep up the good work!
(By the way, Melissa is also Jim MacDonald's daughter. Jim is the guy who has been building that large apartment on Main Street, so she comes from a family of builders.)
