final heads-up to Arts Council members and friends..........


On Thursday evening, at 6:30 PM, the Council of the Arts annual meeting/dinner and party will be held at the Key Colony Inn, in Key Colony Beach. The event is being sponsored by your Florida Keys Council of the Arts.

People who have attended last year were subjected to cold and wind, and some even wore furs and ski jackets. Not, this year.......the room at the Inn is completely enclosed, and we will have even more entertainment and fun provided by the Key Players and some of their talented singers and musicians.

Additionally, pianist Melody Cooper & violinist Pavla Houdkova will perform an eclectic mix of classical, jazz and popular music. Melody & Pavla play in the Arts Council's Senior Citizen Lunchtime Concert Series and in the Lower Keys Hospital concert series.

The complete charge for dinner (each person) will be $25.00, tax and tip incl. and a fine evening and full dinner is in store for those attending. This will not be a fund-raiser, and is simply a reward to our arts council members, staff and guests, and board members who have worked so hard to serve our entire Keys arts community. Please RSVP to the Council Office (Monica or Andrea) at: 305 295-4369 or David Cohn at 305 853-0595.

This is a short notice reminder, as many of our invitations have yet to be received by members. We look forward to seeing you next Thurs evening, February 12, 2004, just before Valentine's Day.
