Since we mailed the membership/donation letter out to many businesses, organizations and people, we have begun to receive donations to Arts Council. We appreciate all donations and dues paid. Donations can be brought to our meeting or mailed to our P.O. Box.
November Meeting – In November bring a small pumpkin with about 15 real leaves so we can make a Holiday center piece. Our meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
