Angel Volunteer Diana Brown
Our undying gratitude goes to over 175 volunteers who gave their time at a gate, in the gallery, in the artist booths, the Kids’ Zone, on the grounds set-up, clean-up, on the phones or in the office during the 2012 Summer Arts Festival. It took their help to make this festival the most successful ever!!


Creative Castoffs Sale

A group of 4 – 6 people are needed to help organize our annual “Creative Castoffs Sale” – a sale where people can donate art and art supplies for resale to raise money for the Arts Center. Duties include setting a date and location, contacting people to donate art, publicity, setting up the event, and staffing it.
