The Pocono Arts Council was pleased to present the 2018-19 PPA Project Stream grants to this year’s grantees from our five-county service area on December 6, 2018 at the Pocono Cinema and Cultural Center in East Stroudsburg.
Pocono Arts Council members in attendance voted to approve the budget for fiscal year 2018-19 and install two new board members for a three-year term. Welcome Alma Barrantes and Jim Evanisko.
The PPA Project Stream grant that Quiet Valley receives through the Pocono Arts Council has allowed us to focus on particular aspects of rural life in the 1800s. Folk art, heritage crafts and music of the time period have been shared with the public thanks to the grant funds used for supplies, speakers and advertising. The hands-on opportunities, workshops and speakers have been well received by our visitors who learned something new and had a good time.Deborah DiPasquale
