Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

It was a welcome relief to attend a party where guests wore a different sort of mask – a masquerade mask. Guests enjoyed food and beverages under a large tent on the street in front of the Center, followed by remarks from Honorary Chair Susan Loyd, Arts Advocate of the Year Shane Reeves and Emily Loyd, Co-Chair with husband Chip. In addition to the silent auction, there was a spirited live auction. Guests moved into the theater to join the late party, featuring dancing, late night burgers and more beverages. Patience Long, Executive Director, and her staff presented a wonderful party!

The mission of the Center is to enhance the quality of life in our community by providing cultural and economic enrichment through the arts. Donations and volunteers are always welcomed.

Visit to check out the 2021-22 plays. Tickets are still available.
