Lamp progress in a nutshell:

·         Demolition is 92% complete. 

·         Construction begins early next month.

·         Manpower is needed on March 29th, April 5th, (and tentatively) 12th, & 27th.


We will wrap up the Lamp’s demolition phase during the next two Lamp Construction Days, March 29th and April 5th.

During those two Saturday work parties, we’ll complete the demolition of the stage and the bathrooms.   (Yep, that’s it!  That’s all of the demolition that we have left, gang!)  Those areas amount to the last 8% of the demo project!


Once demo is complete, we will bid out the construction of the theater section to a professional company.  Volunteer work will continue with construction of the retail areas (ticket office, marquee, concession area, and main entrance).

The retail area construction schedule has not been finalized, but tentatively will begin on Saturday, April 12th.  Then we will take the next weekend off for Easter.  Construction will resume on SUNDAY, April 27th (so we can attend the Downtown Irwin Car Cruise on Saturday).


How will we get the manpower to finish the demo by April 5th?  Well, let me put it this way…

This is your last chance to take a sledgehammer to those red-velvet wallpapered Lamp walls and take a piece as a souvenir! 

If that doesn’t convince you, maybe the way to your heart is through your stomach.   The Colonial Grille is donating lunch, and Dunkin Donuts is donating coffee!


For more info on how you can participate, contact me or stop by the Lamp Theatre on Construction Days!

Our morning shift starts at 9:00 AM, and the afternoon group takes over at 1:00 PM.
