Dear Talkeetna community, families, students and beloved volunteers,
After MUCH consideration, Denali Arts Council and its program Director, Mary Farina have decided together to ere on the side of caution and cancel camp for this summer.
Each year Green Light Circus brings together the community in a way that strengthens the very roots of why began our organization in the first place. As one of the inceptive programs within DAC we hope to take these uncertain times and turn it into a pause of purpose. A time to remember all the indelible moments and regroup for a stronger season next year. May we show our community adoration and support to such a great program through continued passion and togetherness.
We encourage the community to send in video testimonials or a circus act to keep the spirit alive! We will then put together a virtual circus camp extraordinaire! Please upload videos you are willing to share to: GLC DROPBOX or mail your usb stick to Denali Arts Council PO box 404 Talkeetna, AK 99676 with attn: GLC, Debbie Whitecar.
This will be a challenging year for us and we will need help. Many of the expenses to keep the building up to par and to pay our two staff members comes from the success of event tickets and a percentage of program involvement. Because we are unable to offer camp this summer we will be issuing full refunds to our program. We ask you to consider making a donation of your deposit or any portion of your tuition to the health of Denali Arts Council as a whole.
Our hearts are with you all during this hard time. We will miss seeing our Circus Students but look forward to 2021.
Any questions please call the Executive Director Ali Lee at 907-733-7929 or the GLC Program Director Mary Farina at 907-355-4699
