Johnson City, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A piece of Johnson City history gets a face lift from the community.

More than 20 volunteers spent their Saturday morning revamping the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage and the Goodwill Theatre.

Windows were washed and scraped while hallways were painted with a fresh coat.

Outside the theater, volunteers made over the entrance of the building and picked up garbage and weeds.

Box Office manager and Volunteer Coordinator Danielle Gapske said having the community support the theater was the best part of the day.

"It's wonderful to see the investment that other people in Johnson City have in this area," Gapske said.

"This is really a gem in our village and I want people to be able to come here and enjoy it, and it should be beautiful and bright," Johnson City native Monica Slias said.

The theater's curtain will open for the season in September.
