Our budget for FY 2019 included a $44,000 grant that we have received for many years to offset the cost of utilities in our 127-year-old historic building. Notice was just received that the grant was reduced to $25,000, leaving us short by $19,000.  “We are launching a $19,000 region-wide initiative specifically to support art instruction and programs,” Board Chairman Ethyl Ault said. “This is the first time we have instituted such a campaign to offset an unexpected funding cut.”
