A step forward to make this community stronger

Hay River, March 18th - The Hay River Music, Arts and Culture Society (HR MACS) is planning to celebrate the second annual 'Hay Days' festival of music, arts and culture. To make this event happen, a new board had been elected on Wednesday, March 2nd.

The HR MACS is pleased to announce that James Constable will continue to be our vice-president, Shirley King returns as our treasurer, François Lamy will be responsible for fundraising, Anne Boudreau as a secretary, Karen Gelderman wall act as visual arts liaison, Mark Lyon will coordinate memberships, Édith Vachon-Raymond will be the public relations representative, and finally, Jayne Haywood and Susan Lalonde will share the volunteer coordinator position. The position for the president is still vacant. HR MACS welcomes any nominations.

HR MACS wants to bring the community together to plan the 2011 festival. Thrilled with last year's experience, we hope that this year will be even better. For that reason, we are inviting people to join us at our next meeting, at the Royal Canadian Legion, on March 23, 2011, at 6 :30pm.

HR MACS has existed since May 5, 2010 as an official society. The founder and former president, Randy Randle, had been a strong pillar during the organization of the first festival. Unfortunately, he has had to resign from this position due to his moving out of the Northwest Territories. ''Good luck in 2011 to whomever becomes your new president. I hope the society we built, continues to grow and that music, arts and culture thrive in Hay River. Mahsi cho", says M. Randle on our Facebook group page, "Hay River Music Arts and Culture Society".

The main goal of this society is to promote and advance music, arts and culture in Hay River. We are working with the community to represent the variety of cultures in the North and to build opportunities for a stronger arts community.
