NOVEMBER @ the MACC ... in review

Every year we accumulate a boatload** of statistics.
Besides being a gauge of our volume of work, the stats help tell the story of the variety of work we accomplish @ the MACC every year. While the stats inform the big picture, in order to tell the WHOLE story, it is imperative to know the stories behind the stats: the human aspect that brings the facts to life .
If you look at any of our published pieces, you will see many events listed for every month, every season, every year. What you don't see, is our internal/staff calendar that lists all of the meetings, classes, workshops, off-site events, development functions, and more: the WHOLE picture of this busy place.
By sharing a few of our stats with you, I hope that you will get a wider view of the many facets of the MACC.... and " face ts" is a word that definitely contains many FACE s.  It is the faces, after all, that tell the real story: the touching stories of the variety of ways that people in our community connect with the MACC.
Please take a moment to look over some of our factoids below, and to celebrate the many personal "MACC Moments" that you may have experienced within those numbers. Your presence here @the MACC has contributed to our stats, but more importantly: your FACEtime here contributes to the whole story of the MACC for which we thank you very much!
I look forward to seeing you in December, and in 2019 ... @ the MACC.

Art Vento, President & CEO
