The Nicola Valley Community Theatre Society Public Meeting, held on October 28th at the Merritt Civic Center, was a HUGE SUCCESS! The public meeting was well attended with over 100 guests arriving for the evening. Upon entering the venue, attendees were met with a visual presentation of the Conceptualized Drawings, Vision and Mission Statement of the Nicola Valley Community Theatre. Nicola Valley Community Theatre Society Board Members were on hand to answer questions and provide details of the plans and project.
One of the goals of the Nicola Valley Community Theatre Society is to increase membership within the Nicola Valley and beyond to at least 1000 members. Two of the main reasons for the focus on membership growth are of course; #1- to spread an awareness of the project and #2 to imply the backing and seriousness of the community for the project resulting in an increased possibility of potential grant providers. The public meeting was the perfect venue for the addition of new members and we are please to announce that the attendees were very receptive and a large number were added at the meeting. We still need your help to reach our goal of 1000 members, so be sure to add yourself. The cost is only $10 per year for an individual and $20 per year for a family.
