press release from monroe-walton center for the arts

Monthly creative party and old time music jam

The Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is hosting its monthly Saturday Soiree on Saturday, 21, 2023. It happens to occur on the same day as Squirrel Appreciation Day which the center has celebrated each year. This tradition kicked off after the director, Hope Reese, rescued a baby squirrel, Oliver Weft, that fell out of the big tree in front of the center. You can read the story here.
