Tour gets new twist

Days with the Arts are back, however with a twist. This year the community arts council is starting a co-operative arts festival and we are inviting all artists who are interested in taking part.

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.

CAC AGM

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.
