4 PM – 6 PM
Please join the La Pointe Center for the Arts Board for our annual meeting which will be held Joni’s Beach. This year we will be having a picnic.
Thank you to all our members who support LPC. Our by-laws state that every year we must have a membership meeting to inform our members of our finances and other business plans and to vote on the new Board of Directors. We need a quorum of 15 members to vote. Your meeting participation is much needed and greatly appreciated.
If you are not a member of LPC yet, please consider becoming a part of this great Island organization. You can support so many Island arts and artists that make this a great place.
We will have a short business meeting followed by presentations from our affiliate organizations and the winners of our 2021/2022 grant awards.
Artfully yours, The LPC Board of Directors: Peg Bertel (chair), Micaela Montagne (treasurer), Cynthia Mueller (secretary), Peggy Ross (Regranting Committee chair), Rae Lesmeister, Ava Love, Ken Myhre, and John Erste

For the first time in the history of Positivity Children’s Theatre and the La Pointe Center for the Arts StageMobile, Positivity has taken over the StageMobile for two weeks to write, create and product this year’s production. The StageMobile has been used for the Performance Arts Affiliate FREE Summer Concert Series. Holding the Positivity program at the Stagemobile is a marvelous expansion of purpose.

Bring a chair, your dancing shoes, some grub or get a brat from Charlie, and settle in as the Island pays tribute to our beloved Ric Gillman. As CharterKat Jeff V put it:
We’ve made a lot of music for a lot of years for a lot of reasons … but I’m not sure the motivation was ever so pure as with the CharterKats… It was never for money unless we gave it away. Never to play hot licks, though I think we did on occasion. Never for the party (much). Not for the chicks, we were already too old & ugly even then … it was only and always about making fun music with fun people for fun people! … After 7 or 8 lost years, we’re back, albeit one Kat short … I’m not sure it’s like riding a bike, but come and decide for yourself if you can: Madeline Island this Thursday 6pm till ? … And tip a few for Captain Ric, he was our captain… and he still is…
Charlie’s already making the brats. Molly and the band should be here soon! Concert starts at 6 PM! Come on down!
