Dear Speaker Mariano:
I am pleased to report that we have received a grant of $3,000 from the Mass Cultural Council. Thank you for your continued support of the agency.
Mass Cultural Council support is an essential component of our organizational infrastructure. It is an investment in our institution as well as in the community we serve. Here at the Young People’s Center for the Arts, young people gain technical skills in the arts, and develop self-confidence and poise that will help them succeed.
I hope we can welcome you at the Young People’s Center for the Arts soon, so we can show you firsthand how your support impacts our community. I will contact you within the next few weeks to schedule a time when you might come see our center at work. In addition, we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary on April 1. I invite you to save the date and join us in celebrating this achievement. We would be most honored if you would say a few words at our gala event.
Thank you again for this investment in the Mass Cultural Council and in our organization. We will be in touch with news about our organization and to make arrangements for our spring celebration.
