Meet the Arts + Rec Staff! Each quarter we’ll be featuring one of our dedicated Arts + Rec staff! Meet Wendy Gonzales, Office Assistant for Walnut Creek Recreation. Wendy is one of the friendly faces you encounter if you ever stop by Heather Farm Community Center to inquire about a picnic rental or register for a class. Most recently though, she has been lending a helping hand at the Civic Park Community Center, home to the Walnut Creek Seniors Club and destination for resources and activities for adults 50+. There, she assists with membership processing, class enrollment, and special projects. “What I love most about working at Walnut Creek Arts and Rec is that everyday is different. I love working with the public and helping them enrich their lives by taking a class or getting involved in an event or activity. I have had a senior member tell me that since she has joined the Seniors Club and taken classes with Walnut Creek Arts + Recreation, her mental and physical health have improved!”, she says with a big smile. Kat Reisinger, Recreation Program Manager at Civic Park Community Center, says, “It’s always a joy to work with Wendy. She brings such positivity and genuine warmth to her role and she always goes the extra mile to make sure everything is taken care of for anybody who walks through the door.” When she doesn’t work for the City, Wendy loves to spend time camping, boating and watching her three kids play sports. Say hi to Wendy next time you’re at one of our community centers!

Community Arts Foundation

President’s Message Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. “ George Eliot

The Community Arts Foundation receives donations of all sizes from change put in the donation box in the lobby at Shadelands to Donor Circle members who make a commitment of $250 to $5000. For many foundations, these would all be considered small donations but the Community Arts Foundations values each and every donor. We need donations at every level and from a broad range of our community so that we can continue to provide arts for all. Last year we awarded $75,000 in financial support for arts scholarships and outreach programming for members of our community young and old. Even with all of these efforts there were still over 100 scholarships requests we could not fund. Yes, the financial needs in our community are that big! That is why I am asking you to do one small thing today: please visit our website http://commartsfoundation.org and make a contribution! It could literally change someone’s day, year, and possibly life. Think about the joy you get from taking a class at the Center for Community Arts and share this joy with someone else. Together all of your donations, no matter how small, are valued because they add up and allow us to do great things for our community members. Glynnis E. Cowdery

Special thanks Special thanks to all the generous community members who supported our end-of-year fundraising campaign “Give the Gift of the Arts”. During the months of November and December, with your help, the Community Arts Foundation raised over $11,000 in individual donations and $6000 in year-end business sponsorships. Thats a total of over $17,000 raised to help support scholarships for students of all ages!

Community Arts Foundation

Walnut Creek Civic Pride Foundation Continues to Support the Arts Afternoons Program Since 2016, the Walnut Creek Civic Pride Foundation has given support to the Community Arts Foundation and Center for Community Arts to provide programming for the homeless and under-housed at the Trinity Center and at Villa Vasconcellos, a senior affordable housing community, both located in Walnut Creek. In 2020, the program at Trinity Center will focus on creative writing and programming at Villa Vasconcellos will focus on visual storytelling. New in 2020, the visual storytelling programming will also be offered through the Walnut Creek Senior Center. These programs help to facilitate human connections and understanding while offering arts experiences to community members whose access to quality arts experiences are often limited by lack of transportation, mobility and financial resources.
