Arts Council for the South Shuswap Director Shera Niewenhuizen (second from left), appreciates the support received from Gary Cherry, Tobias Johren and Wayne and Louise Olson, and everyone else who lent a hand to repair and clean up the vandalism at the Centennial Field stage. The work included cleaning up various offensive graffiti, repairing the stage doors and mending Music in the Bay banners which had been cut up. “It’s always on the backs of the volunteers, right?” said Niewenhuizen. “You’re doing this out of kindness and because you want to, and then you get that. It’s just doubly frustrating.” Niewenhuizen said the arts council is now looking to install surveillance cameras around the stage.
