The Acushnet Cultural Council is need of members, please consider volunteering. The Acushnet Cultural Council is a group of citizens who have been appointed by the Selectboard to administer funds appropriated by the Massachusetts Cultural Council for the purpose of providing events in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences for the residents of Acushnet.
The Cultural Council is in need of three or more new members to fulfill our commitment to the children and residents of our town. Our team needs five members to operate for a quorum. A term is three years, up to six if you choose. Then you would need to sit out for one year before renewing. This is the case this year, with all but two of our members having to remove ourselves from service.
Meetings are minimal; there are opportunities for seminars and training with wother towns.
Grants previously funded by the ACC: Acushnet Art Show, Storytellers at the library, pass programs for the three Acushnet Schools, music for seniors at the COA, New Bedford Festival Theater, NBSO youth concerts, Tri County Symphonic Band, New Bedford Folk Fetival.
Our prioriites are the town’s school children, our senior citizens and local art organizations.
To volunteer, please send a letter of interest to the Board of Selectmen’s Office, 122 Main St., Acushnet, MA 02743.
