Nash Arts hosts membership drive
To Nash Arts, membership is everything. New members equals new, better events so it's important the Nashville arts center reaches its goal of $25,000 during its current membership drive.

"I say we've been pretty successful (so far)," said Maureen Adelman, Executive Director. "We're probably just halfway to our goal."

Membership drives for Nash Arts are constantly in play, but Adelman said this time of year is when there's a big push for new members. The more members there are, the more events and programs Nash Arts can offer Nash County residents.

"We're trying to bring some new things to Nash Arts," said Adelman. "We're trying to do more things for the community as well as keep the Nashville Showcase."

Some of those new things include showcasing more of Nash County's talent. The second annual Nash County's Got Talent will be approaching soon and last year's finalists will put on a special show in the near future. New events include a Nash Opera, an All County Chorus event for Nash County as well as a possible Haunted House Tour of Nashville.

Funds also help keep the historic Nash Arts building up-to-date. Adelman said the sound system was recently updated through a matching grant from Southern Bank. Now, lighting issues will be looked at but Adelman said there are many other things the building could use.

"We really need to fix it up a little," Adelman said. "We can only do so much through grants and such. It's another aspect of keeping this place running."

By becoming a member of Nash Arts, you receive discounted tickets to all events throughout the year. Members at the patron level receive two free tickets to any event plus a free copy of "The History and Architecture of Nash County North Carolina."

"We really couldn't do it without our members," Adelman said. "Our membership drive really helps us bring in quality entertainment. Our members make a huge difference."

Though a corporate membership drive is typically held separately, Adelman said Bailey's Jewelry just signed on as a new member, offering a nice donation to Nash Arts. "They're our new friends at Nash Arts," Adelman said.

As part of the current membership drive, Texas Steakhouse gift certificates will be given to new members who sign up at either the family or patron level.

Individual memberships are $25 each. Family memberships are $40 and businesses are $75. A patrol membership is $100.

"We're very grateful for the response we've received thus far," Adelman said.

All Nash Arts members receive a membership card as well as an email newsletter. Members also receive discount tickets to all Nash Arts events and programs as well as discounts on rental rates for Nash Arts.

To become a member of Nash Arts, call 45-4734.
