Women's Committee Events

 

Second Wednesday Luncheon Events

As an independent auxiliary of The Fine Arts Association, the Women's Committee has been an integral part of the organizaiton since its beginning. The Women's Committee was chartered as an auxiliary in 1969. 

Our mission is to support and promote The Fine Arts Association in the appreciation of the creative arts of music, dance, art and drama. We do this through special projects, programs, fundraising and donations of money, time and equipment.

Our goal is to support the appreciation of the creative arts: music, dance, art, theater, and to pomote membership in the association and support of the School of Fine Arts.

Open to both men and women, membership in the Women's Committee offers a diverse palette of activities and events in which to participate. Some of the highlights of our year include the Second Wednesday Lecture Series, a monthly gathering featuring musical entertainment and stimulating lectures, all accompanied by good food and good friends; and an annual fund raiser and social event to kick off the holiday season.

When you become an active member or a supportive member, you will discover that the Women's Committee is a fun and fulfilling organization that offers personal rewards as well as community benefits. To become a member, simply complete our online application. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you aboard.
