What a Wonderful Group of Dancers!
Thank you!

Betty Ward, recipient of the Jeffrey J. Plum Legacy in the Arts award, shared some beautiful words:

Thank you for the wonderful tribute and honor... I first became acquainted with the Center for the Arts group through a friend on the Harford County Cultural Arts Board.  That was 6 years ago.  The idea of having a dance gala patterned after Dancing with the Stars appealed to me, as I loved to dance.  What a great way to raise funds- by Dancing!  As time went on, and I was invited to become one of the dancers, a whole new world was opened up to me.  I heard of the envisioned plan for Harford County's very own arts center. What a thrill!  Not only for dancing, but to house all the arts!  Harford County is such a great place to live and this would be 'the frosting on the cake'!

Since the first gala, I have been a Friend of the Arts!  Much research has been done to make this vision become a reality. As a community, I believe we can bring this about.  I look forward to seeing that first shovel of dirt turned for phase one!"
