“Just wanted to send a thank you. The Arts Council has added so much to our spring/summer – the poetry evening, sewing class, Kidshop, the kids’ festival, and Oliver. All were so wonderful and great experiences for our kids – and us!” from The Shaws
Thanks for inviting us to this great exhibit. The children LOVED it and the feedback I heard from parents was also positive! I love that we have walking access to an art gallery! Thank you for all you do to promote the arts in our schools and community! from Amy Wagoner, EES
Without our volunteers, we’d not be what we are. We thank all of you who take the time to give, help, oversee, plan, teach, make lunch, string a light, set a table and just be who you are and give what you can!
