Give Your Community a Holiday Gift!

It is that time of year when you being to think about the important things in your life and those things for which you are grateful.  My thoughts inevitably turn to my friends and this wonderful community of Ketchikan.  Yes, I am bias, but I believe this community is so very extraordinary because of the depth and richness of its artists.  And because of that, I have chosen to immerse myself in the arts and let them make my life better.  I believe in the power of the arts to help people communicate, connect and teach.  If the arts in our community are meaningful to you, and the Arts Council has helped to connect you with an artist, a moving experience or lifted you up when you were down, please consider making your year end donation to the Arts Council.  Your investment in the arts of Ketchikan will make a difference.
