Community Arts Foundation

President’s Message By the time you read this, we will be getting ready to host our first “Donor Circle Thank You Event” in June. While each and every donor is important to our community, the individuals who make up the Donor Circle have given at the $250 to $5000 level for a total of over $25,000 this fiscal year for the Foundation Scholarship program. We also saw amazing Community Spirit during our February “Be at the Heart of Art” Campaign. 75 Community members participated to help raise over $2000. Every bit of community support whether its $5 or $5000 dollars makes a difference for a member of our community who would otherwise not be able to participate in the arts. This year all donations received since early November made it possible for us to reach our $25,000 matching goal with the Quest Foundation Challenge Grant. That means every donation received was doubled! Thank you to the Quest Foundation for their continuing support. From time to time we hear from scholarship recipients who share how the support of the community made a difference. Here is what a single mother said: “My son was exposed to something that I couldn’t give him because I’m a single mom with two kids, and I’m low income. He got really into dance. He would come home every day and say, “Mom, want to see what I learned today?” On behalf of the Foundation Board, Center for Community Arts Staff and the Scholarship recipients, I thank you for your amazing support this year. Together we are making a difference for people in our community by providing “Arts for All”. Glynnis E. Cowdery President

Please join us in welcoming our two newest Foundation Board members, Vanessa Klein and Sandra Jacobsen!

Little Tennis students will learn to recognize, demonstrate and successfully hit the forehand, backhand and serve. They will learn parts of the racket, court, and improve coordination and motor skills (i.e. balancing, overhand throwing, catching, and shuffling). Little Rallyers will work to improve their full court abilities through a series of drills and games. Players should bring a snack, water, and spray sunscreen. IMPROVEMENT & JUNIOR TEAM CAMPS (8:1 ratio)

(Ages 7-15) Students are grouped by ability levels on 1st day of class. Introductory students will learn forehand, backhand, volley, overhead and serve through our unique “court rotation and activity system.” Intermediate and Junior Team students will develop specialty shots and play in Singles & Doubles Round Robin Matches. The instructor(s) will help players with scoring, rules and match strategy. Players should bring a snack, water, and spray sunscreen. TENNIS & SWIM COMBO CAMPS (8:1 tennis / 6:1 swim)
