The theme of the Volunteer Recognition part of the Membership Meeting is "Hearts for the Arts - Give Yourself a Hand." Gualala Arts could not exist without its volunteers, who are truly the heart of our organization. This part of the meeting will celebrate all of our many volunteers' contributions - big or small, obvious or behind the scenes, monetary or hours or skills, they all matter and make a difference.

We will present the Volunteer of the Year Award, Group Volunteers Award and Heart Beat Awards. These awards recognize that there are literally hundreds of ways in which our volunteers insure the success of Gualala Arts and its mission to promote public interest and participation in the arts. We will recognize these varied forms of volunteerism and celebrate the contribution they make to Gualala Arts and its members.
