The Lakewood Arts Council Board meeting took place at the home of Barbara Tobiska. With a good attendance and many items to discuss, we were able to fill the 4 hour time slot and then some! Fortunately, we were fueled by the delicious pot-luck selections from all the attendees! Much was accomplished by this efficient group, following President Barb Benik's agenda. We discussed budgets, increasing our membership, exhibits and events for next year and community outreach goals such as connecting with other local art organizations such as 40West, Block 7 in Belmar, and the Lakewood Cultural and Heritage Centers. The public is always welcome to join us for meetings -- we would welcome your input!
