The Rotary Arts District will celebrate their dedicated force of volunteers with an event at Capitol Theatre Nov. 30.

The Rotary Arts District will celebrate their dedicated force of volunteers with an event at Capitol Theatre Nov. 30.

“The vision for an arts district started to become a reality just over three years ago with the first year of the Argyle Street Banners project.  Since that time many people have volunteered in many different ways to build on the vision. Many people participated in open houses and public strategic planning sessions, others are volunteering on committees and others have participated in the banner painting and door projects,” said Theresa Kingston chair of the Rotary Arts District. “It is time to recognize this commitment of time and energy and show appreciation to everyone involved.”

Naturally the arts will be a part of the celebrations. Performances and stories of how volunteers have given of their time and resources will provide entertainment for the evening. Dessert and refreshments will be served and photos submitted for the Rotary Arts District photo contest will be on display.

Anyone who has painted a banner, sat on a committee, gave input at the planning sessions, or otherwise participated in the Rotary Arts District is welcome to attend and bring family.

Tickets are free, but required, and can be picked up at Echo Centre until Nov. 26.
