The Merryall Center for the Arts in New Milford has received a grant from the Ellen Knowles Harcourt Foundation.

"The Harcourt Foundation has been a longtime supporter of Merryall and we appreciate their continuing confidence," said Eileen P. Monaghan, co-president.

The late Ellen Knowles was a member of the Merryall Center for many years.

With this grant, the center has raised more than $11,000 within the past year.

"This, in addition to our sponsorship program, helps us keep our ticket prices reasonable and affordable for our varied performances," Monaghan said.
