Fiesta Celebrating 25th Birthday

Story and Photography by Joyce Taylor

On a balmy September evening, Ken Stone graciously opened his fabulous Main Street home for a Fiesta to celebrate the 25th birthday of Center for the Arts. The party was complete with margaritas, wine and beer, as well as a Mexican feast; there were musical performances and the much-anticipated announcement of the shows for the 2020 season.  Mark David Williams, Artistic Director, presented the inaugural Impact Award to Susan Loyd. 

The Center at 110 West College Street provides quality theatrical productions, musical performances, art exhibits, educational programs, life-long learning and community activities.  Their Art Gallery is free and open to the public, featuring work by local artists and exhibit changes ever 6-8 weeks.
