Pausing for a commercial message this morning! I want to introduce you to a wonderful group that has been quietly and diligently working for the past twenty years to support the arts and to beautify Durant. They often team up with the Musical Arts Series to present art shows and concerts in the area. They support educational opportunities for area youth. And they have some ambitious plans for future projects that will draw more attention to downtown Durant. I hope you will take some time to learn more about the Red River Arts Council at their website or FB page. I’ll have some more thoughts about their work later.
