Why is HPAAC important in our community? Here are a few people to tell you why! Anne is a busy young mother who plays in the River Valley Band each Tuesday night because performing music with others brightens her day. Dale has found an outlet for his artistic endeavors through the HPAAC website, where he can show his work on-line. Debbie never misses the free writers workshop held monthly at the LeDuc Estate. Diane Saed, the facilitator, enourages conversation while teaching writing skills. Local artist Susan Zinschlag teaches an open art class each week at the Senior Center. HPAAC acts on the belief that the arts make our community a better place to live!
