Can we get beyond our "fraying patchwork of programs, grants and donations"?

November 20, 2011
Dear Encinitas Arts Education Leaders,

I hope you're all out having a lovely, blustery Encinitas Sunday and are looking forward to a bit of down time during the holiday week ahead.  In the past two weeks I've had meetings with a few of the remarkable arts and education leaders here and will be sharing more with you at our November 30 meeting at City Hall. 

Next Meeting / New Leadership

A letter from the new local organizer of the Encinitas Alliance for Arts Education: 
Dear supporters of quality arts education in Encinitas:
I'm very pleased to invite you and fellow arts education supporters to the next meeting of the 2011-12 Encinitas Alliance for Arts Education (EAAE).  Save the date for Wednesday, November 30, 3-5 PM in the Poinsettia Room of Encinitas City Hall. An agenda will follow shortly and I invite your discussion and presentation topics. 
My name is Sandy Jordan, and I will coordinate the EAAE as Joann Johnson moves on to other projects.  I'm excited to help you energize Encinitas' arts education advocacy efforts!
