The Cultural Council promotes and seeks funding for cultural events in Ashby. Cultural events can include demonstrations, local tours, lectures, displays and shows and many other types of events. Please conctact us with your ideas.
The Ashby Cultural Council would like to thank everyone who took a few minutes to complete our survey. The survey was the last two weeks in August, and was available at the Library, the Post Office and Ashby Elementary School. The Council’s funding priority is our children. We have approved many wonderful programs that have been performed at Ashby Elementary School, Hawthorne Brook Middle School and North Middlesex Regional High School. Community recommendations solidly backed our 1st choice priority – Ashby’s children. Another council priority last year was to serve our seniors through an Irish Music program which was performed at the Library. This program was granted to the Ashby Council on Aging. Many thanks to those who came out for an afternoon of fun and fellowship ! Another council priority was a program of storytelling and songs to promote and celebrate the Library’s summer reading program. Another council priority was to promote arts entertainment for the enjoyment of all at Ashby’s Pumpkin Festival. It was a great year of fun and learning, and we look forward to this year’s grants which enrich our lives through public programs that promote access, education, diversity and excellence in the arts, humanities and interpretive science.
