 Message from the President

It is difficult to believe that 2016 is history and 2017 is here. The past year has given us many reasons to be thankful. Beyond our regular programming and the election of a dedicated Board of Directors, we are able to put many touches on our long anticipated building project. If you have taken the opportunity to see this addition and the outstanding decor, you can appreciate what a wonderful addition it is.
We can turn our attention to some of the long term internal projects now that the building addition is off the agenda. One priority is to find proper placement for two of our sculptures. We need to relocate them outside on the grounds. A committee is studying the topic of “Sculpture Garden” and they will offer recommendations to the Board.
While we may have some breathing room in our capital improvement budget, our operating budget is carefully monitored. It is our hope to improve our membership numbers and continue to discover additional reasons to become a member, and increase our offerings to all. Remember to ask a friend to join with you in supporting the OAC .

Arlan Burmeister, President
