HOW YOU CAN HELP
Read about possible actions the commissioner's can take HERE
What we need now is your support and this is how you can do it:
1. Write a letter to the commissioners explaining how this solution is good for the entire community.
2. Attend a commission meeting on any Monday or Wednesday at 9am and verbally explain your position to the commissioners.
3. Write a letter to the editor of the Register Herald explaining your support.
4. Spread this information and your opinion on social media.
What can you include in your communications? Share how the PCAA has impacted your life or how you have seen it impact the lives of others. PCAA and its donors have made a huge investment in the county with our building rehabilitation in downtown Eaton and providing a cultural resource for citizens and visitors. Our intention is to use funds from the Hillcrest property on the E. Main St. property for sustainability of the arts in Preble County.
