October a Good Month for "Arts Council Fund"

Of the first ten months of 2011, it was October's state tax filers who individually proved the most generous in their contributions to the Arts Council Fund. The month's 345 contributors donated $5,016 or $14.54 each. Their donations pushed the overall fund well over the $160,000 mark. We enthusiastically thank all contributors and those arts organizations who promoted this new funding source.
