Fri 12-1-2017

            (Okoboji)-- Some outstanding volunteers and donors were recognized at a celebration last (Thurs.) evening at the Pearson Lakes Art Center. Bob Kirschbaum, Executive Director of the Pearson Lakes Art Center, announced Leah Streeter is this year's recipient of the Volunteer of The Year Award...PLAC Awards01 

            "I tell you what, we couldn't do what we do here without our volunteers. You know, we have a limited staff, but we're able to offer a lot of great offerings just because of the fact we have so many great volunteers. It's a tough selection only picking one, but Leah is one in a million and she, kind of, the cream rose to the top."

Kirschbaum says the Supporter of The Year Award was presented to Denny Walker...PLAC Awards02 

"He's a great financial supporter. He's a real leader in getting support for our Celebrate The Arts, and he has a lot of connections where we've been able to work with several different foundations to get donations to help support the arts, and being a non-profit, you know, we couldn't do what we do here without the support of the community, our supporters, donors and our corporate sponsors, so we're blessed."

A capacity crowd was on hand for last (Thurs.) evening's celebration at the Pearson Lakes Art Center.
