REAA NEWSLETTER 
A newsletter to keep you informed about what's "up with arts."

Letter from the BOD President:
Dear Members and Friends,

This month's newsletter is going out a little late as I had the opportunity to travel to Singapore on business last week.  While I was gone, our CAO Danielle and others within the organization have been busy preparing for several of our programs to kickoff in the next few weeks.

There is a lot of opportunities for Performing and Visual Artists alike, so I will keep this intro short and encourage you to read below for all of the details!

Lisa Schliker -  REAA BOD President
