Happy Labor Day!
It’s hard to believe that it’s time for the kids to head back to school. It is a really exciting time at the Museum, we have been busy planning for this next year.
Laura Acosta is the new chairperson for the Membership Committee. Members are so important to the Museum. By being a member, you are supporting not only the Museum, but you are also supporting our community by making sure that Art is always available to everyone who enters our door. Laura is working on new benefits for the Museum Membership and we would like to see the number of members grow. If you have any ideas or would like to help out with the membership committee, please let her know. Laura is going to be fabulous in this new position.
We are also busy planning our fund raising events for this next year; Black, White, and the Blues (which may be renamed “The Gala”), Dancing with the Grants Pass Stars, and Art in the Garden. We always need lots of volunteers for these events and would love to have your help.
I attended a meeting held at the White City Veterans Domiciliary this last week.It was a Community Arts Forum and they are looking to build partnerships in the community to offer Arts and Humanities to local veterans. It was a great meeting and we will continue to work with them so that the Museum can offer programs for local veterans.
At each Monthly Board Meeting we do some brainstorming on a specific topic.
September’s topic is Fund Development. We always need money. If you have any thoughts, suggestions or would like to help out in this area, please contact me. All ideas and suggestions are welcome.
Thank you for being a valuable member of the Museum.
