Meet the 2017 Arts Fund Chairs
Denise Meyer Pat Dillon
The Allied Arts Council proudly announces Denise Meyer and Pat Dillon have accepted the positions the 2017 Arts Fund co-chairs. The two have stepped into the role with one specific focus in mind: keeping the arts alive in the St. Joseph community.
This is Dillon's second time as an Arts Fund Co-Chair. He and his wife Nancy chaired the campaign together many years ago.
"I feel it is always important to give back to your community," said Dillon. "Helping the Arts achieve their goal continues to strengthen our community by offering wonderful entertainment for our region."
The partners believe that St. Joseph is a viable arts community and there are many reasons to keep a vibrant arts culture. One reason is that the arts allow us to offer a full menu of options as to why St. Joseph is such a great place to live. Another is the economic impact that the arts have on the community.
"Fine arts improve the quality of life," said Meyer.
When asked what the plans are for the upcoming year, Dillon and Meyer said they hope to make this year's campaign very visible and reinforce the idea that the arts are a very important piece of our community puzzle.
