Board Works – Spring 2021

News Release Date: March 2021

Following are a few items we wish to share concerning the recent work of the Board.

1. Update on a Spring Fundraising Campaign

Deborah Glassman’s knowledge of fundraising and her full day workshop followed up by the leadership and work by Joe Wilson and board members, helped the board focus our goals and renew and grow our donor base by creating a Spring Donor Campaign. Members of the Board worked diligently to reconnect with existing donors while reaching out to potential donors. We also built an administrative link with Canada Helps, an on-line fundraising portal. The results have been encouraging and our invigorated commitment has resulted in a total of $6,000 for the Foundation granting program in the 2021 season. Every dollar we raise in the campaign goes directly to artists and arts organizations in Lunenburg County. The Board is committed to mounting an Annual Spring Campaign and we are looking forward to increasing our 2022 Campaign goal. We have a renewed passion to encourage residents to support the quality of life for both the artists and the overall quality of life in our communities.

2. By-law review  

We did it this year!  Not a fun job but it is done!

3. Good-bye and Hello to Board Members

Each year we say goodbye to Board members whose term has ended or who have other priorities in need of their time and attention.  This year Kelly Barker and Rebecca Fisk said goodbye to the Board.
We also said hello to two new members this year; Diana Leszczynski and Letisha McFall. Both are excited about being on the Board and have already found ways to be actively involved. 
We are looking for individuals who have a passion for arts and culture and want to see it grow in Lunenburg County. If you would like to join us please contact Sheila Woodcock, President at  swoodcock@eastlink.ca
