President’s Message

As we ring in the New Year, we welcome our newest DFA board members Loriane Sufficool, Judy Fairchild and JoAnn Trimberger to a team of dedicated DFA members helping to raise monies to support the arts in our community. In January, we will be voting to distribute an additional $23,000 in 2017 to bring our grand total for the past 25 years to a whopping $473,000. Wow – this is impressive! You should all be proud of DFA’s huge contributions through the years.

We invite you to attend our January 12th meeting at the Durango Arts Center and bring your 2017 DFA membership dues. Better yet, invite your friends and family to join us too. We’ve all used to phrase “It takes a village,” and we want to encourage our membership to grow, as we help our village to thrive in the arts community.

Thank you for your continued support!

Kristi Nelson Householder, 2017 President
