People from Grafton and the surrounding area gathered today to save a landmark. The historic Strand Theatre in downtown Grafton suffered a fire on September 20th, causing nearly $40,000 in damage.

With the help of nearby businesses, a chili feed was held to raise money to "Save the Strand".

The theatre has been in the Henriksen family for quite some time, and owners Tom and Tammy couldn't be more grateful for all the support.

Tammy Henriksen says, “It just means so much, and we're really overwhelmed because the people are really showing their appreciation."

Tammy's husband, Tom, says the repairs are a work in progress, but they hope to have things up and running soon
