From dinosaurs to the wide expanse of outer space, the Community Arts Center’s continued success stems from our volunteers who generously give the gift of time, energy and enthusiastic support throughout the year. It takes a village to run an arts center, and this is seen firsthand through the many hours volunteers invest in our center. Whether leading a craft activity during the summer Arts Exploration Camp, helping during our monthly Lunch with the Arts series, constructing a Mars Rover Control Station or sitting at the front desk to welcome visitors, our volunteers go above and beyond the call the duty.
I thank all volunteers who made this year’s “SPACE … Imagine That” exhibit possible. Incorporating visual arts, music and drama, the volunteers and staff were able to treat thousands of visitors to an out-of-this-world experience that was both educational and entertaining. As part of National Volunteer Week, the board and staff of the Community Arts Center extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to the 85 volunteers who invested more than 1,100 hours in this year’s blockbuster exhibit.
