For the past several years CAC has helped out at the Library, by offering several crafting session for the older siblings of the youngsters who come for the reading sessions. The years theme was 'Every hero has a story' and thus the crafts were created along that theme.
September is going to be busy and exciting for CAC! We hope you can be a part of it.
Thoughts of fall abound, as we plan the first of our 'Live Performance' trips for the children of Chowan County. The kids of DF Walker school, along with teachers and chaperons will venture to Elizabeth City to watch the COA production of "The Wizard of Ox". The funds for this are from a bequest to be used to make children aware of the exciting and enriching value of the performance arts. The theater staff and members of the drama department will follow up with helping the children see what goes into bringing the production together...from costuming, set design to selecting the actors.
The school curriculum will include a review of the music as well.
It is always a challenge to find a good location for our Membership Appreciation Picnic since we have to consider the weather along with the other various aspects. We are excited to have it On the porches and in the Parlor of the Inner Banks Inn this year. As a member-supported non-profit organization, we truly appreciate you support and honor our members with a little something to show our gratitude. If you have never been a member of CAC, or were a member in the past but have not renewed, stop by the gallery and what goes on at 504 S. Broad St.
Our first event for the new year (our fiscal year is July to June) is something a little different for us. I am sure you will enjoy 'The Smith Family'. Lynn Smith is an artist creating wood and fabric sculptures and her daughter,
Gabrielle Freeman is a poet. She presents her written poems on framed sketches.
