And the Winona Arts Center Board
On behalf of the Winona Arts Center Board, I want to thank those who attended the February 28 reception and showing of the 1976 film “Out to Save the World” by Wade Britzius and the late Stan Pollock. The film featured the communal and earth-friendly farm that was near Ettrick, Wis., in the mid-1970s. We had over 100 people in attendance and the evening was filled with greeting old friends and reminiscing about a simpler life years ago.
I’m please that we also received $350 in donations that evening toward our campaign to make the Winona Arts Center accessible. Currently the building is not handicapped accessible for community members with mobility issues. Our “Give the Arts a Lift” campaign is working to raise $150,000 by April 1, 2020, in order to install a lift that will ensure access to all floors. To date we have collected $95,000.
If you or your organization would like to join the Arts Center in making accessibility a reality for all community members, your tax-deductible donation can be mailed to: Give the Arts a Lift, Winona Arts Center, 228 East Fifth Street, in Winona. If you would like more information, please contact Fran Goodin, WAC treasurer, at 507-961-5815 or call the Arts Center at 507-453-9959.
