Letters to the Editor
To the editor:
We would like to express our gratitude to the Baldwin City Economic Development Committee and the Baldwin City Chamber Promotion Committee for their generous contribution toward the renovation of the Baker Art Affair Building into the Reece and Nichols Gold Realty, L.L.C. office located at 622 High Street.
The grant offered for the downtown revitalization program helped us transform the building into a safe and visually enhancing storefront for our business.
Dave Hill, the founder of both the EDC and the promotion committee, and the individuals that serve on these committees work very hard and have a very positive vision for the future of the Baldwin City Market Plaza.
Hill constantly strives to find state and local funding to help establish new businesses and support existing businesses.
I hope that everyone in our community realizes the importance of having two committees like these and the effect they have on successfully promoting Baldwin City businesses and employment opportunities.
We would like to thank Hill’s foresight and vision for implementing these committees into our community.
We view downtown Baldwin City as a beautiful and historic place and we hope that these contributions spur further growth.
Dale and Debra Wieden
Dear Baldwin Community and friends of BCAC:
Thank you for an incredible weekend of celebration of the arts! To all that attended and supported our Saturday evening dinner and dance, thank you for making our inaugural event such a success. A special thanks to our table sponsors, Mitch and Kristen Wiggins of Traditions Weddings and especially to Lucretia and Russ Carlson for the use of Stony Point Hall for two huge events back to back! Words cannot express how much we appreciate your generosity and support.
To Tom Russell, thank you for allowing us to celebrate your contributions to the arts community through your works, teaching, mentoring and donations. Your generosity put us over the top this year so that we will be able to continue our scholarship programs for area students continuing their education in the fine arts fields.
Finally, but by no means least, thank you to all that attended and/or donated to the Chocolate Auction on Sunday. Your donations and financial support will continue to sustain the Baldwin Community Arts Council projects. We are truly humbled by your continued generosity.
Baldwin Community Arts Council
