Donation given for marquee

GLOVERSVILLE — A gift was given to the Glove Performing Arts Center to continue with the repairs on the marquee from the William H. St. Thomas Family Foundation.

St. Thomas’s granddaughter, Nancy St. Thomas, took over as administrator of the foundation after her father, James St. Thomas passed away last year.

William H. St. Thomas was a civic leader as well as a successful businessman in Fulton County.

St. Thomas, owner of St. Thomas Inc. in Gloversville, was a predominant figure in the community, on both civic and business level. For more than 20 years he was involved in operating the small personal leather goods business until he retired. The business grew to become a nationally acclaimed leader of personal leather goods.
