Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To provide quality art gallery exhibits, educational programming and entertainment to Pope County and to continue to build on our success and increase those opportunities for people of all walks of life. The board of directors meets on the 2nd Tuesday of every month. On the agenda is a recap of the previous month's activities. We openly discuss the community feedback, attendance numbers, and financial evaluation. We note the activities that did and didn't work. We use that information for future planning and strive to build on the strengths.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our project was to have assistance with paying our monthly obligations in the form of dues to our parent association. We achieved that goal and the funds were very useful to us. Our monthly dues were $2,488 per month.
