Yesterday, more than 200 people attended the Cultural Alliance's public roll out of its year long Cultural Plan. The consultant, Diane Mataraz, explained that we are "opening our Tent" and becoming more that just a fundraiser. While still funding our current grantees, we will also fund partnerships, projects, and individuals who need help.
No longer members, the cultural sector are our partners in driving community through creativity. Very exciting stuff and we will need everyone's help to make York, Hanover, and York County more vibrant and unique than it already is!
At the morning roll out, at Crispus Attucks, the executive director of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, announced that our own Board Emeritus, Founder, Funder and all around arts guru, Bob Pullo, has been approved by the Senate to be the first Yorker ever to sit on the PA Council on the Arts' board. They couldn't have picked a better person - and we are so lucky to have Bob as our county's spokeperson on the Council.
