Cold Snap To Cancel County Grant Ceremony

January 28, 2019

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.
