Three meetings held in April offered residents from Abingdon, Havre de Grace and Bel Air the chance to hear from representatives of the Center’s staff and Board of Directors, as well as from Strategic Planner Duncan Webb. According to Center for the Arts CEO Kathy Smith, the meetings were well attended and participants were excited to learn about upcoming events and supportive of plans for CFA construction.


Smith says, “The purpose for having additional meetings is to make sure all residents have a chance to get the latest news about CFA. Establishing a consistent line of communication and connecting with the entire community is a crucial part of our quest to build a physical home for the Arts in Harford County.  This is a hometown project and these “town hall” get-togethers allow CFA to share important information about our progress, while also hearing from our members, supporters and other interested parties about their goals, concerns and wishes for the CFA. We invite all area residents to take part in these important dialogues.”
