CORNWALL – The committee for the Cornwall’s arts center has announced a significant donation to the community fundraising effort ahead of next week’s plans unveiling.

The family of Cornwall jeweller Andre Pommier announced a $12,000 donation to the fund.

That brings pledges and donations to nearly $850,000 of the $1 million Arts and Culture Center’s fundraising goal.

The architects (GRC Architects) designing the plans for the Pitt Street arts center will unveil the designs during a special council meeting on Monday (March 8) at 7 p.m.

The committee promises there will be “some exciting wow factors” included in the plans for the building.
