MCA • October 2020
Last month we began the new fiscal year, bringing with it the election of our FY21 Board Co-Chairs, Greig Greenwald & Kim Coburn, Amy Kaser as Treasurer, and Tanya Gisolfi McCreedy as Clerk.

You can find the FY20 celebratory slideshow and executive director message linked here. We did a lot last year, from over 120 restored windows to outdoor classes and more, and plan to have a remarkable year this year as well.

Please consider joining us this year - we are specifically looking for volunteers in finance and events . Details online.

What's New
Logging in to the building is now touch-less! Students will be logged by class attendance and all others entering the building can either use the QR code here or the manual login books at each entry door.

We also ask everyone who enters the building to certify their good health. Details are posted on each of the entry doors.

You can read more about our protocols on the MCA website.

National Arts & Humanities Month
October is
National Arts and Humanities Month, a time when we celebrate the role that arts and humanities play in our communities and lives.
As we continue to endure the pandemic, exploration and appreciation of the arts offers hope. Help Munroe continue to provide our community with opportunities to come together to explore and express creativity and hope.
