Artsminded: 'Tis the season for CAB and all things holiday

Lovers of the Arts, here's a gift you can give yourself and the community! The RF Community Arts Base, our premiere local arts organization, needs you, and/or people you think would relish the opportunity, to become a member of the all-volunteer CAB board. This is a working board comprised of artists and people with a strong interest in advancing the arts in our region.

In the new year, when CAB has its annual meeting, some new faces will be voted onto the board for a two-year term, beginning in February, to fill vacancies left by retiring board members.

If this gets you excited please notify Steve Preisler, president of the CAB board (715-425-7530 or or Sue Beckham ( 715-425-7143 or that you are nominating yourself or someone you think would be dedicated to the endeavor.

There are also plenty of ways to become a CAB volunteer without serving on the board. Examples of ongoing events are the Spring Gala, Music in the Park, Art on the Kinni and Community Barn Dance.

Whether or not you're able to serve CAB at this time, everyone is invited to come to the annual meeting to meet the board, other arts enthusiasts, and share in camaraderie and culinary treats. It's at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 23, in the CAB office, downstairs at the RF Renaissance Academy. More info can be found at
