Jenifer Strauss, storyteller and artist, worked with students at TC Central High School as part of our Winter Art Escape program. She told them a Japanese folk tale, then the students made their own Japanese-inspired arts, plus learned to draw cats. It was great fun.
Dear Friends of ACT-GT, We were just informed by the Grand Traverse Civic Center that the Community Room we use for dances will no longer be available to us in 2016. The Community Room will be transformed into a workout room when the YMCA takes over the management of the pool operations. We are working on alternate locations and plan to host the annual Valentine and Spring Dances. The best way to stay updated is to check here often and like ACT-GT on Facebook. Fliers will be distributed when all the arrangements are confirmed. Thank you for your patience. Wishing…
Please remember ACT-GT on #GivingTuesday, Dec. 1. We've made it easy to donate online, via Hometown Giving, and 100 percent of your gift will come to us. We'll use it for our programs, which range from Art Escapes to Kids on the Block to our annual Arts for All Festival. You can also mail a check, of course: ACT-GT 1101 Red Drive Traverse City MI 49684
It's the most magical time of year! The Zonta Club of Traverse City's Festival of Trees opens Nov. 20, with Special Needs Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We'll be the first ones to see this year's delightfully decorated trees. Reservations are required, so call Dayna, 947-1278, to ensure your spot. All activities are fun and family-friendly, so we'll see you there!
There's a great story in this week's Northern Express (Oct. 19-25) — and there's some wonderful news in it about our nonprofit status. Read on! Also, if you haven't already RSVP'd to our Oct. 28 luncheon, please email Dayna or call 947-1278. The luncheon is from noon to 1 p.m. at The Corner Loft in downtown Traverse City. It's a great chance to learn about ACT-GT, our programs, our people and our artists. The luncheon is free, but ACT-GT will gratefully accept donations of any size. See you there!
