DCCA Receives Distribution from Harry Stephens Memorial Fund

Darke County Center for the Arts is grateful to have been included among the recipients of the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial June, 2011 distribution. According to DCCA Executive Director Julie Strait, “The Stephens Memorial Fund has consistently been Darke County’s single largest financial supporter of DCCA for many years. DCCA is proudly embarking on its 33rd season thanks in large part to the support the Stephens Memorial Fund has generously contributed over the years,” she concluded.

The donated funds will be used to support all DCCA programming and operating expenses in the 2011-2012 season. Darke County Center for the Arts annually presents an Artists Series, Family Theatre Series, and Special Performances at the beautiful, historic St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville. Arts In Education programs are made available to every grade of all Greenville City and Darke County public schools. Additionally, the Coffee House Series will once again be offered at various venues throughout the community.
