The Lima Rotary Club was proud to once again host the annual Arts Advocacy Luncheon.
Lima's arts community joined the Lima Rotary Club to honor west central Ohio's arts advocates, creators and philanthropists. Patricia Meeks, band director at Shawnee Local Schools for inspiring a passion for music in her students for more than 30 years. Superior Credit Union received the philanthropist award for its financial contributions to many local arts organizations. Our own Elizabeth Brown-Ellis received the advocacy award, not just for her work with the Lima Symphony Orchestra, but for promoting the arts in general. “The arts are so vibrant in Lima, and I think sometimes we don’t acknowledge that. I think for us to take a minute to sit back and celebrate Lima, in general, but also celebrate the hard work that people are doing here and the things that make this community a little more livable and makes it more personal and individual, it’s just really important.”
Congratulations everyone!
