Tour gets new twist

We are looking for all artists/artisans who may be interested in having a table/display/demos set up on the grounds, June 17-19. Showcase all your work, have demos and spend the weekend creating in a beautiful setting.

The Community Arts Council will hold its annual general meeting, Thursday March 3 at 7 p.m., in the AV Museum. Along with discussing our year in review, elections of board members will take place. If you are interested in joining this board of directors please join us.
