The Arts Council of Calvert County will award more than $22,000 in Grants to Arts Programs at many Calvert County Schools, and will announce an exciting new initiative of the Arts Council on Wednesday, November 2nd at a reception from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.  The Reception will take place at the Springhill Suites by Marriott in Prince Frederick, just off Route 4, at 75 Sherry Lane.

Arts Council President Bill Chambers will join with Arts Council Board Members and supporters, CalvArt Gallery artists and Calvert County teachers representing the many schools that are receiving Grants this year.  “We are pleased to once again be able to award these important Grants which enable our County’s teachers to offer more extensive and exciting art experiences to their students,” said Chambers.  “These are important to our schools and of great value to the young citizens of Calvert County!” 

In addition, the Arts Council is pleased to announce that the Caitlin Merie Hurrey Scholarship Fund Endowment (CMH) has been established at the Arts Council in cooperation with Earl Hurrey in memory of his daughter, Caitlin Merie Hurrey.  This Fund provides scholarships to high school seniors who are planning to attend an accredited college or university.  In addition, the Fund will support music education programs by providing financial support to graduating music education majors.  A total of four scholarships will be given each year.  Established at MENC in 2003, the CMH Fund has been permanently relocated to the Arts Council of Calvert County.

The Arts Council plans to make a celebration of the occasion, and we hopes you will plan to attend this reception.
