Thanks a Million!


A million thanks to everyone who donated to the Diversity Council during the March Millions Campaign! Our donors raised $10,695 on our behalf. About $8,700 of that amount will be matched by the Otto Bremer Foundation. Julie Roenigk's donation also won a $1,000 Bremer Boost for the Diversity Council in the March 12 drawing. Your generosity and that of the Otto Bremer Foundation will have a major impact on our ability to offer education programs to youth and adults alike in 2015. THANK YOU!

Reservations required by Monday the 20th to mari@rochestercivictheatre.org



Diversity Council to present at Multicultural Families Group

Mixed race families, adoptive families, foster families, immigrant families... Many in our community are concerned about raising children in a society where different races are not always treated equally. This support group for parents meets the 2nd Thursday of every month from 6:30 - 7:30pm at Peace United Church of Christ (1503 2nd Ave NE). The goal of the group is to provide support, share tips and experiences, and promote a sense of community. The Diversity Council will be facilitating the next meeting. For more information or to RSVP, contact Kari Johnson Siewert at 507-398-6041 or dreamofpeace@hotmail.com.
