We are so impressed with the turnout and the generosity of everyone involved.” Scrub-A-Mutt is nonprofit organization that raises money through annual fundraising events to support local animal organizations. “This is one of my favorite events of the year,” said Lisa Steenson, executive director of the Northwest Organization for Animal Help. “The organizers are really accommodating to everyone and it is great to see dogs that were adopted from us come back to these events. It has a great sense of community and draws a lot of people every year.” MARYSVILLE — If the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts can make its down payment of $20,000, they’ll have a new home in the facility formerly occupied by Dunn Lumber in Marysville. Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts, a nonprofit arts education organization located in Marysville, has negotiated a leasepurchase agreement with principals of Dunn Lumber for the approximately 1.5-acre property at 1410 Grove St., which includes an approximately 10,000-square-foot main building and an approximately 8,000-squarefoot secondary structure. Scott Randall, president of the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts, explained that volunteer work crews have already begun cleaning up the large uninterrupted space of the main building, and plan to renovate it in phases, repairing the walls before repainting the interior. “This building has a $1 million purchase price, which we’ll be paying off in chunks,” Randall said. “Dunn Lumber has been absolutely terrific to work with. They’ve been open to negotiations and are really committed to their community.” “That facility was built in 1967, and a lot of its other uses have since become obsolete,” said Robert Dunn, president of Dunn Lumber, who noted that his company vacated the space three years ago, and its only other long-term tenant since has been the Turning Point Church of Marysville. “The church had a pretty good run there, but it obviously fits the needs of a performing arts center perfectly, with its large, open indoor spaces.” SEE HOME, PAGE 2 Kirk Boxleitner/Staff Photo Scott Randall, president of the Red Curtain Foundation for the Arts, shows off the back loading space of the former Dunn Lumber facility that his group plans to use to store costumes and backdrops for theatrical productions. 839172 WS
