A $10,000 donation was made last week by Potlatch to the city of St. Maries for the community amphitheatre project.

Steve Henson, manager of the St. Maries Complex, presented Mayor Harry Grubham with the check Feb. 25.

“The company is very happy to support this project,” Mr. Henson said. “We’re celebrating 50 years in the community this year and we are very happy to help with community projects like this one.”

“The city is very appreciative of the donation,” Mayor Grubham said. “This is a company that is very involved with its community and participates in community-oriented projects.”

Potlatch is the second local timber company to make a donation to the project. Stimson Lumber donated $2,500.

“We’re very appreciative of the two private timber companies to step up and make donations toward this project,” Chris Renaldo said.

So far, the city has $57,304.02 for the project in the bank. That does not include a $20,000 grant it received from the Inland Community Foundation. Mr. Renaldo said a few other organizations that have had fundraisers to support the project are also expected to make donations.

“We are in the process of getting a final estimate of what it is going to cost to build the amphitheatre,” Mr. Renaldo said. “We still plan to put the project out to bid this spring. Our goal is to have the amphitheatre built this summer and finished in time to be used during the Paul Bunyan Days celebration.”

Anyone who wants to make a donation to the project can do at city hall.
