Cold Snap To Cancel County Grant Ceremony
SCRANTON — Upcoming Arctic temperatures this week are to blame for the cancellation of a grant ceremony, Lackawanna County officials said.
Checks will be mailed to grantees in lieu of Thursday’s county arts and culture grant ceremony, which had been scheduled for at 5:30 p.m. in the Scranton Cultural Center at The Masonic Temple.
The high temperature Thursday is expected to reach only eight degrees, according to AccuWeather.
Among the awards is a $2,000 grant to the Scranton Fringe Festival for children’s programming.
Questions should be directed to the county Arts and Culture Department at 570-963-6590 x 106, the county said.
