Recently, we announced that Klinkhart Hall has been awarded an incredible $100,000 Grant from National Grid. It requires that we raise an equally incredible $100,000 match . . . . What does it take to raise $100,000? It takes people who believe that we need a place to call home for the arts in Sharon Springs!
Steve Larson and Chris Ohrstrom, co-owners of Adelphi Paper Hangings, LLC in Sharon Springs are believers! They have announced a $20,000 contribution from Adelphi to help us match the National Grid grant!
This is not the first time Adelphi has supported Klinkhart, but Larson says this time is different: “It’s hard to think of another project in Sharon Springs that will make more of a difference in our community than reopening Klinkhart Hall – even if it doesn’t involve wallpaper!”
“We are a small company,” says Larson, “but we’ve been lucky to create a unique and successful artisan-based business. And we’ve been lucky to be in Sharon Springs for nearly 20 years. Supporting Klinkhart Hall is something we can do now to give back to our community.”

The Adelphi donation comes with a challenge from Larson: “I know these are strange and difficult times,” he acknowledges, “but I hope others will be challenged to do everything they can to support the Klinkhart Hall restoration. All of us really need to work together to make this happen.”
We could not have said it better! Please join Adelphi Paper Hangings in supporting a restored Klinkhart Hall! We know this is not going to be easy, but we know we can do it with your help. Just look how far we have come already! That’s why we are asking all of our friends: do what you can, as soon as you can, to keep this project on track and on schedule.
Be a part of it! It’s for all of us! It’s for our community!
