Presentation: Durham Arts Council

If you missed last Monday’s Meeting, you missed more than a pretty good beef brisket. You missed some strong Ngoma drum work by two Congolese musicians garbed up to drive an opening ceremony fit
for a king. You also missed the best part of all – watching the assembled membership of Durham Rotary bust a move when lead drummer, Pline Mounzeo, invited everyone to join in dance, chant, and fun.
And much fun it was.

Hosting the off-site event was The Durham Arts Council Downtown. Executive Director, Sherry DeVries, updated Club Members on the tremendous progress the Council has made since it opened its doors in 1954 — to the tune last year alone of $10 Million Dollars in estimated economic activity.

Club Managers also updated Members on progress toward fundraising goals and, staying on perpetual
message, pitched for more money. Our thanks to all for a fun and productive Meeting!
