ALFA Guild needs more volunteers to survive

The Arrow Lakes Fine Arts Guild has been promoting the Visual Arts and providing a venue for nearly 15 years.

Will we lose another of our cherished societies?

The Arrow Lakes Fine Arts Guild has been promoting the Visual Arts and providing a venue where artists can display their works for nearly 15 years. We have been privileged to enjoy many shows of our local artists’ works as well as shows from outside artists.

The continuation of this valued community organization relies on the dedication of volunteers. A core group has always been there with new leaders and volunteers helping out each year.

As this core group moves on, we enter into a new phase in which new people are needed to take on the responsibility as Board members and volunteers.

The Arts have been an integral part of the cultural diversity in the Kootenays throughout its history. We have an established, recognized, talented and diverse artist sector in the community that attracts visitor and tourist attention as well as providing local entertainment and appreciation. We need to ensure the activities of the ALFA Guild continue and grow.

Your support will bring vitality back into this endeavor so that the community can continue to enjoy the social gatherings and artist displays that help make our community stand out.

I am proud to live in this vibrant community with so many dedicated volunteers who recognize the necessity of each of our sectors including the Arrow Lakes Arts Council and affiliated Societies, the youth organizations, sports groups, our church groups, and other supporting groups who work along with the NADB, the Chamber of Commerce and the village to give this community such powerful dynamics. I’d hate to see even one disappear.

Each of us plays a role in sustaining a healthy and prosperous community so don’t hesitate to share your talents and expertise.  If you are interested is supporting the arts and want to be a part of this vital aspect of the community please show their support by contacting Brian at
