CARES Act Relief Grant
The Chewelah Arts Guild has been awarded a CARES Act Relief grant in the amount of $4,000. This CARES Act grant funding is provided via the National Endowment for the Arts with support from the Washington State Arts Commission, ArtsWA. This rapid-response funding is for non-profit and fiscally sponsored arts groups and organizations facing financial hardship due to the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Early in March 2020, in light of COVID-19, the Chewelah Arts Guild Board decided it was prudent and necessary to cancel three of the Guild’s main annual fundraiser events: The Quilt Show, Taste of Chewelah, and Music On the Mountain. Even so, the Guild funded its Rainbow Mini-Grants Program, which awards $1,000 over two funding periods, toward a variety of local Arts programs and projects, as well as the Guild’s Senior Scholarship, awarding two graduating high school seniors continuing in the arts, $500 each. The Arts Guild Board, Officers and committee chairs have continued to meet via zoom, planning though not knowing when it will be possible to resume many other Arts Guild events and programs. Committee members remain focused on planning events like Light Up the Park and the Rainbow Fund Mini-Grants Program, as well as others further on, when feasible, like Pecha Kucha, the Community Arts Show and others.
CARES Act Relief grant funds must be used to cover a portion of the Guild’s general operating expenses. Arts Guild memberships and donations provide a portion of funding for events and programs that over the years, have grown into a vibrant part of Chewelah’s identity, cultural life and business community.
Our annual Light Up the Park event
was different than usual due to the COVID 19 restrictions
and an unexpected cold snap and snow dump.
the organizers, Tabitha Baugh, Betty Myers and Indigo Kennedy
and the team of hearty volunteers who
made it happen!
Thanks also go out to all the businesses
who helped with financial donations and decorated scarecrows
and always the people who carved their pumpkins
and weathered the cold to bring them back to the park
and all the bundled people who came out to view
the beautiful glowing works of art.
Thank you Everyone.
