Supporting the arts

Dear Editor:

Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities (CCAH) wishes to thank those of you who joined us on Monday, Sept. 22, at the 2008 CCAH Harvest Feast to celebrate the growth of the council’s new programs and the maturing of our signature events.

In the past 12 months, CCAH has initiated Arts in the Schools, (a curriculum-based program), Arts After School and the new Spirituality Series in partnership with the Gordon Cooper Library. The First Fridays of Carbondale, the Summer of Music and the Annual Carbondale Mountain Fair continue to create vibrancy in downtown Carbondale. All of these programs have helped us fulfill our mission of “enhancing the creative life of the Carbondale community.”

We would like to thank the following people who made our event so fantastic: the talented Mark Fischer and his amazing staff of the six89 Restaurant who set a high standard for the culinary arts. To Michelle Anna Lindberg of Republic National Distributing and Kimberly Jackson of JAX Vineyards in San Francisco for providing us with the perfect wines to compliment Mark’s harvest meal. To Bob and Wendy Moore for bringing us Theodore Roosevelt as a reminder of our nation’s heritage. To all of the artists who so generously donated their work to further the mission of CCAH, to Carol Klein who is always there when we need her and to the community which has supported us for the past 37 years.

Please stay invested with CCAH as we continue to grow and enrich our valley. There are new and exciting programs in the planning stage. You can renew your membership, join, donate, make suggestions, and stay informed at http://www.carbondalearts.com.

Ro Mead, director
