Many Thanks and Congratulations to

We are excited to announce that CAL was invited to apply for The Arts Grant for Artistic Enrichment in American Communities from the National Endowment For The Arts.  Being invited by the NEA is quite an honor for CAL and recognition of the role we play in our community.  The application was submitted and we were notified that our application was approved for the $10,000 grant.  This grant is earmarked for the 2021 Madeley National.

Congratulations Lois
