Laboring for the arts
The Corry Central Labor Council has donated $1,000 to the Corry Area Arts Council, whichwill use the funds to help finance the 45th Sunday in the Park set for Aug. 7th 2016 in city park.
Thanks to the generosity of the Corry Central Labor Council who shared $1,000. of their Gaming Revenue, children of the Corry Area will be treated to five hours of bounce house fun and a train ride around City Park.
