We’re not quite two weeks away from the Homestead Center for the Arts Annual Celebration of the Arts. For those of you intimately familiar with HCA, bear with me while I share the news with those who might not be.
Friday, May 15, 2015 from 5:30-7:30 p.m., we will have a reception and awards recognition at the Villages Audubon Club House, 1851 South Canal Drive Homestead, FL 33035. The cost is only $10/person and will include light refreshments and door prizes. The theme this year is, “Come Meet Actors, Artists, Authors and More!” The reservation form can be found at the HCA website of http://homesteadcenterforthearts.com and you can pay by check or cash. (Sorry, we haven’t gotten to the PayPal or other options stage just yet).
The format for the event will be a lot of fun and members of most of the affiliate groups will be on hand to happily tell visitors about what they do and how to become involved in local arts and culture. A sampling of those groups are: The Children’s Art Gallery (they teach adults, too), the East Everglades Orchid Society who can help you learn everything you ever wanted to know about orchids, the Homestead Community Concerts with their upcoming season, the Lamplighters Writers Group with the different times that they meet, the South Florida National Parks Camera Club with the exciting things they have planned, and the always fascinating South Florida Woodturners Guild who not only preserve the beautiful craft of woodturning, but they do so with recaptured local woods.
When people ask, “What is there to do around here?”, many are not aware of HCA’s more than two dozen groups that are dedicated to promoting arts, culture, and our unique environment. Come join us and spread the world through your social media contacts.
