ozens of members of The Diamond Valley Arts Council (DVAC) gathered at the intimate Harvard Street venue for the annual Members Showcase and Luncheon on March 25. Volunteers Patricia Wilson and Jan Fifield greeted dozens to the event at 11:30 a.m. Lunch was provided by local caterer Stephany Borders of Party Planners.
Past President Richard Leitz introduced participants, and brief presentations were made by partnering nonprofits, including Hemet Community Concert Association and Hemet Library Foundation, to name a few. Present were many familiar faces and longtime supporters of the arts, including Hemet Mayor Linda Krupa. Dr & Mrs. John Harsany, local artists Elena Kern, Peggy Nottingham, Lynne and Bob Throckmorton, and many other hard-working devoted contributors and volunteers.
DVAC is one of several nonprofits serving the valley’s cultural interests. DVAC is supported by people who donate time, talent and financial support to those that would otherwise not have an opportunity to experience some form of art, literature or music. DVAC provides numerous activities and events to the community, including Musica! Strings Academy, directed by DVAC board member and secretary Anna Pechanec Anchetta, and a recently introduced writer’s class. Twice monthly DVAC hosts live music events of various genres. Local, regional and national artists often perform at the venue.
