This is the second post in our new series, the Season of Thanks, we’ll be posting 1-2 times per week through New Years Day to share with you why we are thankful for you! Please consider making a donation to support our continued work in the community, click here
As we prepare for this weekend’s 5th Annual Baking Competition, being held at Union Church’s Holiday Bazaar and Luncheon, we are reflecting on the joy of community and gathering around food.
A part of our community is the people who spend so many hours of their time making music together, making art for the public, volunteering, baking, cooking, and making a financial contribution to us. They are the heart of WCCMA, you are the heart of WCCMA. If you would like to make a contribution in any amount for #GivingTuesday or any day of the year, you can click Here. Even a few dollars makes a difference.
People tend to gather around food, and that is certainly the case at WCCMA! We love exploring the culinary arts with you and the community. Whether it is welcoming those from the community into the Baking Competition, enjoying a meal with musicians at our performances, or having you bring home a piece of that love with you by purchasing cookies to share with your family.
We are so grateful to have the wonderful people on the board of the WCCMA and our volunteers that tirelessly cook, and bake with love for our major fundraisers. And for the support of Hannaford Supermarket for being such wonderful community supporters of our events (including providing some much needed veggies for the table!)
Although food is an important element in our year, with fundraisers including the Spring Tea and Luncheon, the Multicultural Buffet, the Baking Competition and Sale, and the lunch at our annual Artisan fair, what it’s really about is community and togetherness.
Great things happen when we work together! Will you consider making a donation to support our work together in the community?
We as a community just love to see local youth involved, and it is especially wonderful when they perform. This is all possible because of your support of WCCMA performances and education programs.
With your support not only do participants in our programs learn directly from teachers, but also from others in their community of student musicians. They perform for each other, help each other, and participate in a caring community.
Not only does your contribution make professional musicians available to students, but to you as well. After performances, while the experiences is still sizzling in our hearts and minds, the audiences are invited to gather for post performances chats, Q & As, cookies, and conversation.
Your support makes the performances happen – it really is vital to that piece – but just as importantly you make the performances available not only for yourself, but for your neighbors. With your donations we can continue the mission of offering outstanding music performances with not required admission. That means that you are making it possible for that struggling single mom to bring her kids to the concert, or that curious high school student whose family may not have the extra funds for a concert ticket.
So grab a plate, pull up a chair, and please consider joining our table of donors. You can make a donation by clicking here, or you can join us this weekend on Sat-Sun (Dec 5-6) at the Baking Competition and Sale at the Holiday Bazaar and leave a contribution there. We’ll save you a seat. 🙂
