Below is a press release from State Rep. Dave Robertson’s Office:
BOSTON, MA — The Wilmington Cultural Council will be receiving a state grant of $8,000 and Tewksbury $13,800. The state grant is available to every city and town and allows for local programming to be funded and accessible to any resident of the community and state.
“With Massachusetts just about fully open, people are excited for these local events again that really add a feeling of home to our towns. People like Wilmington Cultural Council Chair Chang and Tewksbury’s Chair Pasanuk, or library staff like Tina Stewart and Robert Hayes take this money and create these events for everyone,” said Representative Robertson upon the grants announcement.
The Wilmington Cultural Council plans to use this grant for multiple unique projects including the library sponsored trips to the MFA and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, a Hip-Hop Dance Chair Exercise for Seniors, and Musical Video-DVDs for Long Term Care & Assisted Living Patients to be entertained and active.
Tewksbury’s awards include the library’s 3rd Annual Summer Concert Series, the Public Health Museum exhibit on Revisiting Public Health in Massachusetts, and a puppet show at the Tewksbury Library.
