president's message
Wishing you all the best as we usher in 2022! There are many things that each of us can be thankful for as we start a new year. It is a time to reflect on the past but it is also important for us to set 2022 goals and objectives for ourselves.

Likewise for FAB – we all are grateful for the generosity of our members that allowed FAB to grant $278,000 to 34 arts organizations for their 2022 season. With the continuing impact of COVID, we need to be steadfast in increasing members, both individual and corporate. We strive each year to surpass the grant pool from the previous year, and with a successful 2021 Visionary Campaign and 2022 membership recruitment, we will accomplish that!

Thank you for your enthusiastic support of FAB!

And remember, those members who sign up a new member or who bring a potential member to a FAB event will receive a limited edition 2022 FAB hat!!
