Arts Council asks for help

The Summerland Arts Council is looking for some volunteers to serve on its board of directors for the coming year.

The Summerland Arts Council is looking for some volunteers to serve on its board of directors for the coming year.

Susan Gibbs, one of the members of the board, said members do not need to be artists.

“We need people with organizational skills, financial skills and fundraising ideas,” she said.

The board is responsible for setting policy, financial decisions, grant writing, building upkeep and the organization of various activities throughout the year.

She added that she would like to see younger people joining the board.

Among the programs offered are adult workshops, the children’s Summer Arts Program, gallery shows, a permanent collection, the gift shop featuring local artisans and promoting arts and culture in the community.

Sharry Schneider, vice-president of the board, said the commitment for board members is a few hours a month.

“This coming year, the Arts Council will be facing the very serious situation of not having enough board members to carry out its mandate,” she said.

“Your participation would allow the Arts Council to continue with all of the activities it has done in the past for our community of Summerland.”
