WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — If you’ve ever been downtown on 3rd Street, chances are you’ve seen the historic Thalian Hall.

The Downtown Rotary Club honored the historic theater and its executive director Tony Rivenbark today as part of Community Recognition Day. The club presented Rivenbark with a plaque and a hefty check to go toward renovations.

The newly refurbished theater brings more than 85,000 visitors a year to enjoy a variety of events.

“Community Recognition Day honors those individuals, organizations and groups that have made Wilmington such a wonderful place to live and provided a quality of life that we are used to living,” Community Recognition Day Chair Bernie Malman said.

The Rotary Club’s first Community Recognition Day was in 2008, honoring the Wilmington Police and Fire Departments and the New Hanover County Sheriff’s and Fire departments.
