A Letter From THE PRESIDENT
THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING ON
For the North Augusta Cultural Arts Council the year 2020 has been a ghost of our normal. In 24 years of existence NACAC has never done so little - and it has been frustrating. We have done without NA Stars, student art, Music in the Park, and the PRISM and Veterans Concerts. On a positive note - we held the SpringFest Art Show, awarded $3,000 in scholarships to two NAHS graduates with futures in music, and the Gazda scholarship to a NAHS graduate with a future in art studies. Currently we are accepting applications for grants to teachers to support special arts programs with their students - these will be awarded in November.
I very much appreciate those of you who have supported us financially with a membership, as well as our Board members with their varied interests, and everyone’s willingness to work to bring the arts to the North Augusta Community and the CSRA. I hope that 2021 will allow us to get back on track with a full program.
Finally, I want to thank the City of North Augusta for its leadership in organizing NACAC in 1996, and for its continued financial support which has made it easier for us to devote time to programs in the arts and minimize our time fundraising.
