With Christmas right around the corner it makes me think about the wonderful people in our local mountains who give of their time and often their money to help our communities. Without a doubt one of the most important organizations continues to be the Arrowhead Association. This group, that started the organization in 1985, was determined, dedicated and willing to help at a moment’s notice and today, all these years later the members continue to not only bring wonderful music to our mountain communities but along the way they help local music students in many, many ways. The performances they bring to our mountain communities are always wonderful.
Without a doubt the members of the Mountain Arts Auxiliary this group of dedicated group of women provides support for the music programs and events sponsored by the organization are truly spectacular. Luckily this dedicated group of local children if they want to learn to play an instrument they may be able to get financial help from this wonderful group. There are several different programs that the Arrowhead Arts supports from sponsoring musical performances in the local schools, a strings program, as well as youth orchestras whose students are in the Rim School District. Without a doubt one of the most most wonderful things this local organization does is making sure that the local students perform at many events throughout the mountain communities and many venues “off the mountain”. Each year the organization has a huge part to play in the local production of The Nutcracker as well as funding the Early Childhood Music Program. One of the most important efforts by this wonderful association is they often help students with a scholarship program so students can attend summer music camps, private student music lessons and senior scholarships.
During the 2016 year alone the members of the Arrowhead Arts Association’s “on the mountain” programs totaled $92,399. Between all the programs they sponsor and the musical events this wonderful organization is absolutely amazing. If you’ve never attended any of their performances keep an eye on this local organization and promise yourself you’ll get to some of the performances they bring to “our” mountain.
When you add up all that this organization does for our mountain communities they deserve so many kudos. For for more information call (909) 337-4296 for information or log onto:www.ArrrowheadArts.org.
