Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, community and area members will have an increased awareness and understanding of the many styles and forms of music and dance that our ancestors listened to and enjoyed throughout their lives. Evaluation will come through a follow-up meeting with project planners, reference to notes taken regarding observations made during the performances, and counting an actual count of audience members.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Pioneer Day attendees increased 33% over the previous year's event based on the guest book. This type of event and the musical artists featured gave area citizens a great opportunity to experience and blend so much local culture, arts and history together at one time.
