Follow the Dream...
 
For those of you that may not know, VACT is planning to build a new "Dream" rehearsal space.  As participants of VACT, we wanted to keep you in the loop regarding the "It's Possible...." building campaign.  I have attached a copy of a very nice article written and published by the Verona Press in their July 3rd edition summarizing the current plans.

We have received very favorable response from the entire Verona Common Council.  They have informed us that they will put us on the Agenda for their August 25th meeting.  The two issues they will be discussing further are the purchase of our current building as well as the most ideal site to offer us.  We continue to work on the campaign and plan for what we hope will be a September rollout.

Please like us on Facebook and watch the website to follow the "Dream" campaign.  We will be sending out future correspondences with ways that you may participate in this very exciting venture.
