3rd Birthday Party Review!!!

On Saturday January 22nd the Portside Arts Center held their 3rd annual birthday celebration to thank the community for their on going support and dedication. Everyone had a blast decorating their own fish cookies and cupcakes, or eating pizza while working on arts and crafts. The children and adults had the chance to participate in the painting of the actual panels of the educational fish mural that is to be constructed on the exterior of the portside in coming months. Musical entertainment was provided by the Portside’s own music department instructor, Chris Johnson. Board members of the Portside gave away door prizes during the party as a personal thank you to the community for their support. A Full Plate Restaurant, Home Slice Pizza Restaurant, Artist and Craftsman Supply, and Staples were all contributors. The Portside Arts Center also made a donation of a gift certificate towards a class at the center.The Armamingo Thrift Way donated our beautiful birthday cake with an edible picture depicting the Portside’s mural. The birthday party was also an invitation for new faces to be introduced to the Portside. As is always the case at the Portside Arts Center spirits were high as the arts and fellowship teamed up to provide a fun learning environment where minds, young and old, can thrive. The Portside would ask that supporters please keep a look out on, sponsored by Amazon, for the Portside Arts Center’s “Take Away” project to raise money for the Portside Arts Center Scholarship Fund.
