March Recap - It's been a productive month.

1. We are excited to announce the formation of the non-profit River Valley Cooperative Arts. This parent non-profit is designed to translate the message, energy & momentum of the Fire Station Arts initiative - allowing for future growth and scale-ability.
2. Scott County Historical Society has offered to be our fiscal agent until we are an official non-profit. Thank you!
3. We are proud to have been selected as a potential grantee at the FEASTmpls event on Saturday, March 24, 2012. It is open to the public, we would love to see you at the event and welcome your votes!

4. Welcome new partners!
  • Mary Hernandez: Shakopee school cultural liaison & member of the Economic Development Advisory Committee
  • Beyond The Yellow Ribbon: a support organization for veterans
  • Score: Business plan mentor services
5. The City Council will announce an open Request For Proposals (RFP) for public use of the fire station. This is great opportunity for everyone involved. The more people thinking about revitalizing the downtown area - the better. Some members of Fire Station Arts will be in attendance to give a brief update. We welcome everyone to come down & show your support!  (Tuesday March 20th, 7:00 - Shakopee City Hall)
Fire Station Arts promotes economic and cultural development for downtown Shakopee and its diverse population through the establishment a community run arts and event center in the former fire station.
