Prizery kicks off campaign

DONATIONS MADE EASY – It’s never been easier to donate to The Prizery community arts center. For the first time, The Prizery can make monthly bank drafts of any amount from any bank account. Those reluctant to make a big lump-sum gift can now pledge 12 small monthly donations: no bills, no stamps. The Prizery’s goal is to encourage first-time donors to pledge just $10 per month. Just $10 supports everything from local amateur theatre to professional Shakespeare, from a Pre-K Arts Academy to a Revolutionary War history exhibit, art shows, art classes, music classes, ballet lessons and banquet hall rental space. All donors will receive a snazzy new Prizery bumper sticker and be noted in Prizery performance programs, and donors at high levels of giving receive perks. Pictured holding fliers recently mailed are board members, front, right to left: Charles Simmons, Carol Foster, Judy Green, Nelson Stevens and Board Chairman John Fulton; back row: Melissa Peacock, Dana Miller, Peg Anderson, and Executive Director Chris Jones. Not pictured are Barbara Bass, Frank Lee, Chris Elliott, Leslie Schneider, Dr. Richard Allen, Jim Burgess, Shirley Archer, Kelly Balance, John Cannon, Cheryle Ferguson, Tracy Quackenbush and Dr. Mark Morris. For information on how to donate, call 572-8339 or visit to download a flier.
