2015 in Review!

Friends of the Studio,

What a year it has been for the Studio! We have seen the renovations continue, with the installation of the kitchen and other finishing work! This year there were many classes including yoga, belly dancing, african drumming, yarn spinning, tax preparation, the teen reading program, and so much more! There were so many fun events including concerts, jam sessions, game and movie nights, book readings, and work parties.

The Studio survives financially from fees earned from these classes and events but also relies on donations. The Studio still requires approximately $2,500 per year in donations to cover all of its bills.

Your donations are tax deductible, so why not make a donation now to the Studio?

Studio Fundraising Appeal

Friends of the Studio,

We have come so far in improving the Studio! It is a beautiful space that is getting more and more use from the community. In the next couple of weeks, we are getting a donation of most of a kitchenette! Some of the events going on at the Studio include:

  • Yoga
  • Belly Dancing
  • Vipassana book store
  • Hoedown (country dance)
  • AA Meetings
  • Free tax advisory (next month)
  • Live jazz and other musical events
  • Movie/game nights
  • and more…

We are taking in more money in rental fees but it is still not enough to cover all of the bills. The mortgage payment is $400/month, insurance is $150, telephone and electric are around $110, water and sewer is around $90, plus a few other miscellaneous monthly bills. That means we need around $800 per month to keep the Studio alive. We have enough on hand to get us through February but at the current rate of donations, rental income and expenses we will not be able to pay all of our bills in March.

We have a few generous “sponsors” who donate $15 to $25 per month. Thank you!!

PS: Having fundraisers periodically helps a lot to fund the Studio. We need volunteers to take on some leadership in organizing fundraisers. Let’s have another Hoedown! How about the Valentine’s dance? 

If you want to see the Studio continue to be a valuable community center, please help!
