Pat Briggs has been a standout member of our community. She is beyond reproach in her passionate effort to bring kids into the life of the theatre. Thank you, Pat.

I am SO ashamed of our City "leaders" who have ousted you so unceremoniously and clearly Unfairly today..After ALL you have so freely and unselfishly given our community over the years....
OUTRAGEOUS Mis-handling of power and utterly heartless and wrong-headed.

God Bless you in SPITE of them!
