Early in October, the Friends of the Legacy Activity Center (LAC) hosted a series of luncheons for local artists, teachers, and community organizers known for their experience working with young people.
In the course of lively discussions, participants offered a wealth of exciting and workable suggestions for the future of the LAC. Those gathered agreed that activities at the Center should be hands-on, inter-generational, and collaborative.
Among the specific ideas for programs are children’s art classes and exhibits, mask- making workshops, forums where youth discuss matters they identify as important, writing workshops and public readings, a readers theatre, hip hop classes, and a Legacy drum circle. Several partnerships with area arts and service organizations were offered, and steps have been taken to develop those.
The Friends of the Legacy Activity Center is a group of people who are knowledgeable about the needs of children and youth and are willing to give their time and expertise to advise the board of the Legacy Project, Inc., on equipment and programs needed for the Center. The Friends are also committed to finding resources to meet those needs and to contributing personally. If you would like to join that group or have recommendations for activities, talent, and/or funding, please contact Polly Cassady, chair, at 846-4993.
