Arts Council gets new executive

North Thompson Arts Council held its annual general meeting in Little Fort

On Sunday, Sept. 29, the North Thompson Arts Council held its annual general meeting in Little Fort. One of the main orders of business was to elect the 2013-14 officers. The newly elected members are as follows: president – Charlene Lau; vice president – Doris Laner; secretary – Margaret Houben; treasurer – Patti Wood; directors – Margot Venema, Lana Laskovic, Kim Cartwright and Irene Gouchie.

One director position remains open and will be filled a- the next general meeting.

After the meeting, members watched a very inspirational short video: “Phil Hanson, Embrace the Shake”. This video is available online at www.ted.com, a non-profit group committed to ideas worth spreading. All their videos are free to watch and cover a wide range of topics.

The next event planned will be a Cashless Craft Swap on Oct. 26, 12:30-2:30 p.m. at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre (the Ridge) in Barriere.

At the next general NTAC meeting, which will be on Oct. 27, 2 p.m. at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre, the 2014 events calendar will be discussed, with dates and locations being set for all the events being planned for the coming year. If you want to have a say in what we will be doing in the coming year, please come out and join us.

 

New members are always welcome, and membership fees are only $10 a year. You don’t have to be an artist to be a member; a few of our current members are art lovers and wanted to join just to support the arts in our community. For more information, call Margaret Houben at 250-672-9330 (evenings), or drop by the Armour Mountain Art Gallery, located inside Armour Mountain Office Services in Barriere.
