In Memory

Our dear friend and long-time volunteer, Ann Simmons, passed quietly on September 14, 2017. Her dedication to the arts and community was evident by her support of the Arts Council, tirelessly editing the Arts Calendar since 2001.

Ann was an art collector and an avid reader, and she had a deep love for animals and gardening. Her smart wit and contagious energy will never be forgotten. Our staff and board are grateful to have had the pleasure of working with such a wonderful person.
