Donk's Theater III

Downtown Hudgins just doesn't look the same.

In spite of valiant efforts to save the facade of Donk's Theater,
 at the end of the day, she was a total loss.

Mathews County doesn't usually support, encourage or tolerate change much.

The upheaval in the landscape of downtown Hudgins is very disturbing and quite unsettling.

While we struggle with the sadness of what is lost, we are hopeful for something new.

Donk's Theater II

Demolition has begun on the beloved Donk's Theater, which recently succumbed to the weight of the elements of a storm known along the eastern seaboard as Jonas.

The ticket booth is now gone.

And the facade looks so sad and empty.

Lynda Smith Greve has started a Go Fund Me campaign to help with the cost of replacing equipment and other things lost in the disaster.  Click here to read more and to help.
