The September Bette Buzz

"The Bette" is beginning to flourish again thanks to the help of volunteers. 

We still need someone to fill the last board position:

Resource Director: Tracks membership payments and renewals. Schedules and tracks volunteers to help on all aspects of the Center.

We always need Gallery Minders to keep the doors open Thursday-Sunday so we can sell your art.  And, you can be a gallery minder without ever using the computer!  Please contact anyone at the center if you are interested!  Thank you.
