The GFWC Arts Community Service Program is designed to enable members to create and contribute to art education and activities in their communities as participation in the arts helps raise public consciousness and connects members and clubs with their community

BSL Partners with Center Place Fine Arts for “Halloween Horrible Parade”
Catch the Halloween Spirits! October 26, 2012 is the annual Halloween Horrible parade at Center Place Fine Arts. Anne Paige is chairing this fund event and will be looking for some helpers to distribute goodies to the goblins. Also, we’ll need to provide those goodies. So, during the September and October meeting, you will have an opportunity to donate $3 towards the purchase of the treats. This is a great way to get in the Holloween spirit and enjoy the children’s excitement!
A Big “THANKS”
The $600 checks to the Art Departments of our six area high schools have been delivered by Bradlee Swanson, President, Glenda Thurow, 2nd Vice President, Pam Knox, Arts CSP Chairman and Ceal Murray, Public Issues Chairman. We were able to see first hand how much good our clubs contributions make to the students each year!
