As you read this week we have another weekend filled with music, dance and theatre and we hope you’ll join us for one or all of these events. You can start this evening with chamber music at FIA, join us for dance tomorrow at 11am at Riverbank Park and follow that up with the Rep Mural Play neighborhood event just a couple of blocks away at Flint City Hard Cider. All outdoors and all absolutely FREE.
It is with great sadness we share the news that our long-time colleague and administrative assistant, Barb Clark, recently died. Barb joined the FIM in 1985 and spent her entire working career with us. Her most recent position was FSPA Administrative/Business Operations Assistant. Barb will be remembered for the smiling, kind woman at the desk who registered students for classes and also answered a multitude of questions related to tuition assistance. She took special pride in shepherding families through the application process and served generations of FSPA students with the utmost respect and care. She will be dearly missed. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family and friends and all those touched by Barb’s life.
Hug your family, cherish the beautiful weekend ahead, and please stay safe and healthy!
