How have the arts, culture, and/or humanities impacted your life?

Answer: "My wife and I have been long time season ticket holdersto te Hale Theater in Sandy. We love to see our local talent excell and celebrate life by exhibiting their talents! We lost a son last year that was mega talented (maybe a bit partial). He loved musichis whole life, as did several of our oter children, so we have spent our share of time enjoying local talent. Additionally we were the directors of the Weber County Christmas Festival for well over10 years. This event was a community event to help us all understand how dfferent cultures celebrate the holidays in our community. It was so successful and doubled in attendance each year!

I love the arts, to me they are an expression of how much we enjoy life! To those that share that opinion, I am grateful.... cause I can’t carry a tune in a bucket!"
