Groundhog Day: Top Hat Optional

Paul Ash Lobby, NVC Performing Arts Center
Saturday, February 2, 2013

Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow this year
and forecasts an early spring!

Celebrating donor support of NVC’s Performing Arts Center and Programs and the installation of named donor tiles, seats, and benches to honor:

Dr. John W. Boyd (memorial), Margie Cadelago (memorial), Joyce and James Diemer (memorial)
Dolores Fischer, Penny Pawl, Robert Savage (memorial) , Gary Silva, Loretta Silvagni (memorial)

We are proud to recognize the generosity of NVC Performing Arts Center supporters who have collectively provided over $805,000 in direct support to the performing arts instructional programs since 2006.
