Blyth Festival Theatre To Benefit From New Legacy Funding

The Blyth Festival Theatre will benefit from a newly-created legacy with the South Huron Community Fund.

Ila and Arnold Mathers have established the legacy that will provide a yearly grant to the Theatre well beyond their lifetime. Ila and Arnold Mathers have been patrons of the Blyth Festival Theatre since its inception and Ila was a board member for six years and both have volunteered as ushers and helped at the annual book sale as well as donating seats when the theatre was refurbished.

Chair Tom Prout explains the South Huron Community Fund helps connect donors with the projects and charities that they are passionate about. More information about the South Huron Community Fund can be found on their Facebook page or their web site at
