Working from home has been challenging. My husband and the dog don’t really know what to do with me. I have completely rearranged the house to accommodate for a new desk, as far away as possible from the sound of YouTube racing and old western gunfights. PCA Serves is running smoothly and we are out working in the community, serving in ways we never dreamed we could serve. And when the time is right and the food banks are full again, we know our community will be there for us in return. We are one of the lucky ones that received a PPP Loan and our small group of employees will continue hold down the fort. The Capital Campaign is on hold and will remain on hold while our priority shifts to keep the center open for years to come. 
I have taken a half time sabbatical to continue to monitor the finances while saving the organization some much needed funds. The board has sharpened their pencil and we are prepared for battle. 
And now, it’s time to create…at home! We invite you to enjoy PCA at Home! We will be bringing you suggestions for upcoming art shows and productions from all over the world that you can watch right at home. In the last few weeks we launched our online live hosted parties, where you can watch some of our archived productions and interact with some of the actors and the director. We will be bringing you acting, singing and readers theater all produced from our performing artists homes. You will be viewing our ‘artist of the week’ which highlights the incredible talent of our local visual artists.
Now would be the time when I would normally say, ‘so sit back and enjoy’. Not this time! We want you to join us. Watch and enjoy yes! But when was the last time you did something creative? Creativity is not only great for your brain but it’s fun! So please, set aside 15 min a day, but do it daily, and create. It doesn’t matter what it is. A doodle, a sketch, knit, sing; whatever! But dedicate that time and stick to it daily. Make a list and write from it. Even if you don’t like to journal the list could be ‘Things that made me happy today’ or ‘Ways I was enough today’. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Art is all about risk! When you are creating ‘Be inspired by what you love’. Inspiration springs from there. Close your eyes for a second and try it! See you soon!

You're invited to the Jellicle Ball this Friday 15th May - For 24 hours in the UK and 48 hours in all other countries!

Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS, the most famous musical of all time, first exploded onto the West End stage in 1981. Using the latest technology, all the excitement, thrill, romance and intimacy of this theatrical legend has been captured on screen.
One of the truly legendary musicals in the history of Broadway, MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG opened to enormous fanfare in 1981, and closed after sixteen performances. For the first time, BEST WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED draws back the curtain on the extraordinary drama of the show's creation - and tells the stories of the hopeful young performers whose lives were transformed by it.
PCA would like to thank all of our volunteers for their continuing efforts serving the community. Sue Ford, at the food bank, reported an uptick in donations this last two weeks, so thank you to our newsletter community for your response to the call for food. Thank you to those of you that responded to our Facebook challenge to call in to the radio station for the matching food bank pledge drive last week, it was truly awesome to witness your generosity. We are still accepting donations at the PCA office.
It is a very rewarding volunteer opportunity to serve at the food bank and all safety precautions are being considered, so if you feel moved to do so contact Laine, or sign up through the website and we will direct you.
Serving all of you at this time remains our mission, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have a need or know of someone who does.
