Jacoby Arts Center
ALTON — The Jacoby Arts Center has announced its new permanent board.
New board members are Linda Benson, Cindy Buenger, Fran Cain, Jason Hill, Dee Kilgo, Kerry Miller, Dit Panfile and Dennis Scarborough.
During the last six months that the interim board steered the Jacoby Arts Center, President Cora Miller led the charge to resuscitate the ailing nonprofit arts organization into the success story that it is today. Their main goal was to pay off a 10-year-old mortgage and credit card debt, and with the help of Jerry Wunderleich and the launch of the 845 Campaign, they were able to completely eliminate all outstanding debt.
To celebrate the installation of the new permanent Board of Directors, the success of the 845 Campaign, and to thank the community and contributors, there will be a public party from 7-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, at the Jacoby Arts Center, 627 E. Broadway, Alton.
